“The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”

As part of my continuing series, “Tips to Help Your #Hustle,” here is another quick tip to help dominate in your working life. The sooner you conquer your career the sooner you can be free to start living the life you’ve worked so hard for. For me, that life happens up high in the mountains of Park City, Utah.

Adding Audible to my life has dramatically improved my book club performance. DRAMATICALLY. And it’s been interesting too. I don’t care for when the narrator changes the word “book” to “audiobook.” Like, it wasn’t written as an audiobook, so to say “When I sat down to write this audiobook, …” that isn’t what the author intended. And a note about hi we’re changing chapters would be nice too. But I digress.

The book I just finished on Audible was Thrive by Arianna Huffington, read by her sister Agapi Stassinopoulos. There are a lot of uncomfortable comments on the narration but I thought Agapi’s accent was beautiful and when Arianna writes about her mother’s death you can hear it in Agapi’s voice. There you are, driving along, next thing you know you’ve stumbled in on a very intimate moment, listening to a daughter describe her mother leaving this world, and JFC WHERE ARE THE TISSUES I’M SORRY OFFICER I’M FINE IT’S JUST THIS BOOK ON TAPE.

7HabitsThis month’s book should hopefully mean less pesky feelings, but no promises. It’s an oldie but a goodie, and one I’ve started countless times but never finished, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I think I’ve only ever gotten to the third or fourth habit so I’m only 3/7ths effective, right? So far I’m really enjoying it, and I love that it’s narrated by Steven R. Covey, the author. But this is the first audiobook I feel like I need the paper copy of as well. Like I’m missing something by not reinforcing it with my eyes as well. So we’ll see.

Happy Monday everybody! Go knock ’em dead!
