For me, the 7 Habits are the essences but not the whole story. Each essence has its own implications if you're willing to consider them. Of course, considering without applying has limited value, and it's one of the easy-to-miss features of Covey's writing that he asks you to get up and do more than nod your head in agreement. Covey's writing endures in part because he doesn't try to make you an infant who is incapable of doing things for yourself, like so many self improvement books do nowadays. Covey reminds me to think deeply and authentically about what I want, because one day I'll be living with the consequences of it.
