Course Introduction

Henry Ford once stated, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.  The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.

In registering for this course, you have taken the first step in keeping your mind young by demonstrating a willingness to learn new things that are outlined in the book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  Since the book was first published in 1989, you may find some of the concepts in this book familiar, as they have permeated the business world.  In this course, we will be exploring each of the 7 Habits, as well as the theories supporting them. Most importantly, you will complete activities that help you to apply these Habits in your daily life.
