Habit 5
Seek First to Understand,
Then to Be Understood
Pretend listening

is more common. We still aren't paying much attention to the other person, but we "pretend" we are by making comments such as "yeah," "uh-huh," "cool," or "sounds great."
Habit 6
Synergy is achieved when two or more people work together to to create a better solution than either could create alone. It's not your way or my way but a better way, a higher way.

Get in the Habit
Paradigms and Principals
The Personal Bank Account
Habit 1
Habit 2
A paradigm is the way you see something, your point of view, frame of reference, or belief.
They are incomplete, inaccurate assumptions about the way things are.
Keep promises to yourself
Do small acts of kindness
Be gentle with yourself
Be honest
Renew yourself
Tap into your talents
Reactive choices:
Tell her off. Then hit her.
Go into a deep depression because you feel so bad about what she said.
Decide that she's a two-faced liar and give her the silent treatment for two months.
Spread vicious rumors about her. After all, she did it to you.

Proactive choices:
Forgive her.
Confront her and calmly share how you feel.
Igonre it and give her a second chance. Realize that she has weaknesses just like you and that occasionally you talk behind her back without really meaning any harm.
Be Proactive
Begin with the End in Mind
You may not realize it, but you do it all the time.
This means developing a clear picture of where you want to go in life.
Decide where you want to go and draw up a map to get there.
You draw up a blueprint before building a house. You read a recipe before you bake a cake. you create an outline before you write a paper. It's all a part of life.
Habit 3
Put First Things First
This is all about learning to prioritize and manage your time so that your
"first things come first"
, not last.
It also deals with learning to overcome your fears and being strong during hard moments.
This is why Mr.Covey calls this the habit of
The Private Victory
The Relationship Bank Account
Your relationship bank account deals with the following things:
Keeping promises
Doing small acts of kindness
Being loyal
Saying you're sorry
Setting clear expectations
Habit 4
Think Win-Win
Win-Lose- The Totem Pole:
These people have an attitude life that says the pie of success is only so big, and if someone else gets the big piece then there is less for them. So they make sure they get the first slice or get a piece bigger than the other person. Win-Lose is competitive.
Lose-Win- The Doormat:
Lose-Win looks prettier on the surface, but it's just as bad as Win-Lose. It's known as the doormat syndrome. Lose-Win is weak and easy to step on. It's easy to let your parents have their way with you rather than try to share your feelings with them.
Habit 4
Think Win-Win
Lose-Lose- The Downward Spiral:
Lose-Lose says, "If I'm going down, then so are you sucker." After all misery loves company. Lose-Lose is usually what happens when two Win-Lose people get together. If you want to win at all costs, and the other person wants to win at all costs, you're both gonna end up losing.
Win-Win- The All-You-Can-Eat Buffet:
Win-Win is a belief that everyone can win. It's both nice and tough all at once. I won't step on you, but I won't be your doormat either. You care about people, and want them to succeed. But you also care about yourself, and you want to succeed as well. It's the belief that it's not you or me, It's both of us.
Habit 5
Seek First to Understand,
Then to Be Understood
I'll start off with the five poor listening styles:
Spacing out
Pretend listening
Selective listening
Word listening
Self-centered listening
spacing out
is when someone is talking to us but we ignore them because our mind starts wandering off. They might have something important to say, but we're caught up in our own thoughts.
Selective listening
is where we only pay attention to the part of the conversation that interests us. For example, your friend talks about how it feels to be in the shadow of his talented brother in the army. All you hear is the word "army" and say, "Oh yeah, the army! I've been thinking about it lately." Since you only want to talk about what interests you.
Word listening
happens when we actually pay attention to what the person is saying, but we only listen to the words, not the body language, the feelings, or the meaning behind the words. Because of this, we end up missing what's really being said.
Self-centered listening
occurs when we see everything from our own perspective. Instead of stepping in their shoes, we want them to step into ours. This makes us judge, advise, and/or probe.
Habit 5
Seek First to Understand,
Then to Be Understood
Then there's
genuine listening
. This type of listening is a higher form of interaction, which leads to real communication. In order to practice this form listening, we need to do three things differently.
Listen with your heart, eyes, and ears:
Listening with your ears isn't enough, because only 7% of communication is in our words. The rest is in the body language (53%), and the tone in our voice (40%).
stand in their shoes:
To become a genuine listener, you must take off your shoes and step into another's. You must try to see the world as they do and try to feel as they feel.
practice mirroring:
Think like a mirror. What does a mirror do? It doesn't give advice, it doesn't judge, it reflects. Mirroring is simply repeating back in your own words what the other person is saying and feeling.
Synergy is everywhere.
Synergy is:
Celebrating differences
Finding new and better ways
