Stephen R. Covey’s new job: Professor at Utah State

His interview by the Chronicle contains these 7 habits for highly effective professors.

 “It would be very similar to what the generic recommendation is inside the book. The first habit is to be proactive, to take responsibility, and take a lot of initiative. The second habit is to begin with the end in mind, because all things are created twice—first in the mind, and then in fact. And the third one is to put first things first. It makes your security come from within, rather than from without. Once you’ve achieved this independence, you can work on the habits of interdependence—think “win-win”; seek first to understand, then be understood; and synergize. The seventh habit is to sharpen the saw. Exercise yourself physically, mentally, emotionally, in your relationships … and then spiritually recommit yourself to make a difference, to live in total integrity.”
