Conquering public victories for #careerlions

Last week we’ve covered part one of the review of the management book classic The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey. In his book, Covey distinguishes two kinds of habits, public victories and private victories. I’ll be covering the public victory in today’s blog post. The importance of private victories before public ones is quite simple according to Covey. Conquer and celebrate your private victories first, before going public as it is the foundation of everything else. So, if you haven’t read part I, I would recommend before getting into this one.

Conquering private victories for #careerlions

It’s a classic that you must have heard about at some point in time: The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven R. Covey. I honestly have to admit that I have been gifted this book for the graduation of my Master’s two years ago, but only recently picked it up to read. Even though it took me a while to start reading this book, I was captured by it from page one. In his book, Covey distinguishes two kinds of habits, public victories, and private victories. I’ll be covering the private victory in today’s blog post.

The 22-minute meeting

Recognize those endless long and inefficient meetings, the ones where your attention is long gone and you’re wondering whatever will be served at lunch. Yup, those meetings are also the ones that can be transformed into short and effective 22-minute meetings. One of my goals at the office is to increase my personal effectivity and create more time for deep work. To me, that also means having less disruptions from my phone or colleagues. To achieve that I have been focusing on having less and less meetings and increase the effectiveness of the the essential ones. Therefore, I was really happy when a colleague brought the 22-minute meeting to my attention. And since sharing is caring, I am sharing the concept with all you #careerlions.
