The Church of Rationality

You can believe in whatever you want, but if you want to believe in the truth -- you must be rational.

  "In the absence of compelling reasons to believe, unbelief should be preferred."

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

 by Stephen R. Covey

 

[The following is a summary of the seven habit of highly effective people as given in the popular book of the same name.]

 

Be proactive

Initiate things, donít be reactive Ė donít react in negative ways (you donít have to get angry, upset, jealous, etc.)

 

Begin with the end in mind.

Be goal oriented.  All things are created twice, once in the mind and then in reality.

  

Put first things first.

Have priorities.  What could you do as a habit that would be of benefit to you?

  

Think win / win (seek mutual benefit)

Others: win/lose, lose/win, lose/lose, win, win/win or no deal

  

Seek first to understand then to be understood.

Diagnose before you prescribe.  Listen with intent to understand.  A big deposit into the Emotional Bank Account Ė it affirms the other person.

 

Synergize

The whole is more than the sum of its parts.  Cooperation, open-mindedness, trust.

  

Sharpen the saw

Renewing yourself: physical, spiritual, mental, and social/emotional
