7 Habits: The second three habits
The 7 Habits in one picture
7 Habits: The first three Habits
The next three habits: Habits #4, #5 and #6 also form a virtuous cycle like we saw earlier in the first three habits. Unlike the first three habits, it is clearer that the seeding of this virtuous cycle begins with Box 6 (Habit #4, Think win-win).
Without Box 7, (Habit #5,, Seek to understand first), it would be nearly impossible to discover opportunities for synergies (box 9). Progress depends a lot on the ability to listen patiently and well (box 7).
Stay with these three habits and enjoy the virtuous cycle.
