About this Template

What are the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

The 7 habits is a book written by Stephen Covey in 1989. Despite being written more than three decades ago, it continues to attract new readers and serves as a fundamental text in the self-help space.

In the book Stephen outlines how through the alignment of internal values with external universal principles - the reader can experience a paradigm shift that leads them to become highly effective at reaching their goals. The ultimate goal is to progress from being dependent on others to becoming independent and then later interdependent and able to cooperate with others.

The seven habits Stephen presents are grouped into three sets that each focus on a specific habit that Stephen wants the reader to develop. The first three habits are focused on the habit on moving the reader from a state of dependence to one of independence, then next three with going from being independent to being interdependent, and the final habit is meant to assist with maintaining and continuing the progress made.

How do I use the template?

The template contains the seven habits in a board format. Each habit takes up a column on the board and contains a short summary to remind you of that habit's objective. You'll also find a list of activities for each habit.

The idea is that you can start from the first habit, read the summary, then open the list of activities and start working your way through them. Each activity listed contains a description and is meant to develop the habit they're listed under. Once you feel ready to move on to the next habit you can move on to the next habit and begin practicing it.

How to use the template

The bullet journal template has two main sections, the calendar, and the monthly '⏳ Future' sections.

The calendar - A long list of months with each month containing the days for that month. You'll add your tasks, notes and events under each day.

The future logs - Each month has a '⏳ Future' section that serves as a placeholder for activities that should be completed during that month but do not yet have a specific date.

The monthly log allows you to view all the events for a given month. You create this view by clicking on the bullet for the current month and then clicking on the star ⭐️ to save that view in the left hand sidebar.

The daily log allows you to quickly jump to today and work on the day's tasks and events, and add notes. You create this view by searching for 'Today' in the menu bar and then clicking on the star ⭐️ to save that view in the left hand sidebar.
