The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Chapter 3 : Working on character involves aligning personal paradigms with universal principles.
Paradigms are the building blocks of our character. They are our fundamental principles – the glasses through which we see the world.Our perception is not an objective reality, but rather a subjective interpretation tinted by the paradigm-glasses we wear.The habits which form a large part of our actions are direct results of those paradigms.Since they are the core of our character, paradigms are the key to making any change.
