If you take a look at this picture how would you describe it? “Do you see a woman? How old would you say she is? What does she look like? What is she wearing? In what kind of roles do you see her? You will probably see two women in the picture the old one and the another one about 25 years old — very lovely, rather fashionable with a petite nose and demure presence.”
Here are the most important 7 habits which you must take into consideration:
Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Habit 4: Think Win/Win
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
Habit 6: Synergize
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
The real beauty of the 7 Habits is that improvement in one habit increases our ability to improve the rest.

For the first top 10 best books we would like to present you the most outstanding biographies and autobiographies from our English Book Hall.
Do you like reading biographies?
Reading a great biography or autobiography can be as exciting as reading your favorite novel, science fiction or a thriller. It is already known that a biography can provide more valuable and useful lessons than most self-help best sellers and offer more professional development wisdom than you can likely apply. Most people say that they learn way more about personal development from a biographical book than from a personal development guide. Why? Because a biography presents a man’s life story, highlighting various aspects of his life, including intimate details of experience. The reason why young people should read biographies, autobiographies, memoirs, and diaries is because they provide the most valuable lessons in life, improving your knowledge and self – education.
Our library has chosen to show you the best 10 biography titles from a series of biographies that were registered in the English book collection list. Make sure you save time to read a biography. This time will be never wasted. Continuă citirea →
