A good follow up to 7 Habits as it gives practical examples of how to apply the 7 habits. ( )
  Neale | Dec 22, 2007 |
Living the Seven Habits is a compilation of real-life stories about how people have implemented the Seven Habits in their family and professional lives. It follows two other books: the seminal Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and the more nuts and bolts First Things First.

I enjoyed this book because the stories were inspiring and good reminders to practice the Seven Habits. But I could not relate to most of the stories directly because, while they involve universal principals (the Seven Habits), the specifics of the stories are far removed from my life. Many of the stories concern raising children, dealing with enormous adversity, or working in large companies. I have no children, am blessed with a pretty easy life, and work for myself. Because I could relate to these stories only on a theoretical level, I preferred the first two books, both of which are more abstract than anecdotal.
