FightMediocrity 7 habits of highly successful people

Whether you want to be a rocket scientist or anything else that requires hard work and persistence, success will come when you consistently do the right things to move yourself effectively toward your goals.

A friend of mine and subscriber to this blog (hi David!) referred me to a fantastic YouTube channel called FightMediocrity.  The owner of this channel, Rodney, creates animated summaries of famous and influential books.  Thanks very much for the connection, David!

One of these books, which I’ve also read many years ago and credit to many of my successful habits and results, is The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.  If you haven’t ever read this book, I highly recommend it. (Stay tuned for an Amazon link.)  You will get an effective and entertaining summary of the book in under 7 minutes by watching the video below.

If you have read the book, I still recommend watching this video as effective positive reinforcement of these powerful principles!

      David, thanks again for pointing me to this video and YouTube channel! I was watching more of his videos today. Some takeaways from the book? That’s tough. What I love is that he distilled success principles into 7 memorable, achievable, and simple habits that anyone can follow and apply in their lives. It takes practice, persistence, and a willingness to try and do a little bit better every day. But that’s how we improve ourselves and then our situations. Thanks for the link to the crash course. Hope you’ll share more about that in your next article!
