The Blinkist app offers nonfiction books in short and gives you the key ideas in bitesize form. But that’s not all: Blinkist also gives you a key piece of actionable advice from each book so that you can instantly incorporate it into your day-to-day life.

One of Blinkist’s most celebrated summaries is Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This iconic book is packed with strategies that have transformed millions of lives. With Blinkist, you can unlock the secrets of this life-changing book in just 23 minutes.

This ultra-condensed summary is crafted for those on the go, giving you a flash of insight and inspiration that can fit into the smallest of breaks in your day.

Here are the key insights from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People :

1. Sharpen the saw. Don’t work yourself to death. Strive for a sustainable lifestyle that affords you time to recuperate, recharge and be effective in the long-term.

2. Be proactive. You have a natural need to wield influence on the world around you so don’t spend your time just reacting to external events and circumstances. Take charge and assume responsibility for your life.

3. Begin with an end in mind. Don’t spend your life working aimlessly, tackling whatever job is at hand. Have a vision for the future and align your actions accordingly to make it into a reality.

4. Put first things first. To prioritize your work, focus on what’s important, meaning the things that bring you closer to your vision of the future. Don’t get distracted by urgent but unimportant tasks.

5. Think win-win. When negotiating with other, don’t try to get the biggest slice of the cake, but rather find a division that is acceptable to all parties. You will still get your fair share, and build strong positive relationships in the process.

6. Seek first to understand, then to be understood. When someone presents us with a problem, we often jump right to giving a solution. This is a mistake. We should first take time to really listen to the other person and only then make recommendations.

7. Synergize. Adopt the guiding principle that in a group, the contributions of many will far exceed those of any individual. This will help you achieve goals you could never have reached on your own.
