The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

In regards to people relating with other people-
Is dependence the goal? No.
Is independence the goal? Not quite.
“All of nature is interdependent. Human life is also interdependent.
Interdependence is the power of WE.
-‘We can do it.’
-‘We can cooperate!’
-‘We can combine our talents and abilities to create something great, together!’
Independent people who do not have the maturity to act and think interdependently may be good individual producers, but they won’t be good leaders or team players. They’re not coming from the paradigm of interdependence necessary to succeed in marriage, family, or organizational realities. Life, by nature, is highly interdependent.

Interdependence is a choice that only independent people can make. Dependent people cannot be interdependent. They don't have the character to do it. They don't own enough of themselves.”

From the book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.
Time Magazine titled him one of the world’s most influential people…for a reason.

One of my personal favorites. There is a wealth of information in this book!
