I had read Sean Covey's book before but I did not retain the information. This time, when I read it I actually read and thought about the words that had been written and I took them in. I compared all of the habits to my life and I feel like I might actually make a change in my life and model after some of the seven habits.

For the first time I listen to presentation I totally don’t understand what he talking about at all. It is because of the language barrel. It’s hard to listen to what he said but...
