Entrevista exclusiva: Stephen Covey en su rutina por la mañana,Blogs,Tecnología,GTD y El Secreto

"La clave es no dar prioridad a lo que está en su calendario,pero para programar sus prioridades".- Stephen Covey

Es un placer compartir con ustedes esta entrevista con uno de mis héroes,el autor de Stephen Covey 7 Hábitos de la Gente Altamente Efectiva fama.

Covey,por supuesto,es una de las inspiraciones de este sitio,y ha informado a todos mis escritos (incluyendo el Zen Para Hecho) que hablan acerca de cómo hacer cosas importantes,no sólo a todo lo que hay en tu lista de tareas.

Además de The 7 Hábitos de la Gente Altamente Efectiva ,Algunos de sus libros más vendidos (que lo recomiendo) incluyen Primero lo primero , Principio de Liderazgo Centrado , Los 7 Hábitos de las Familias Altamente Efectiva ,and his most recent book, El 8 hábito: De la eficacia a la grandeza .

He’s also started up his own website, Stephen R. Covey: La Comunidad ,which is a community of his readers,with exclusive articles,videoyaudio,as well as forums,blogs,and tools for those trying to live the 7 habits.

The 7 Habits include being proactive,beginning with the end in mind,putting first things first,thinking win/win,seeking first to understand,synergizing,and sharpening the saw. His 8th habit boils down to “Find your voiceyinspire others to find theirs.” Indispensable reading.

I was able to connect with Mr. Covey through email,and in this interview I tried to keep the questions to a minimum (he’s a busy guy),avoid repeating too much of what’s already available in his books,get a little more personal,and give you guys (and myself) a little insight into someone who has found a way to live his life according to his principles.

Espero que disfruten esta entrevista!

Zen Habits: For a lot of people your books are so full of mind-blowingylife-changing ideas,that they get overwhelmed. They want to start,but don’t know how to. What would be the best first step they can take to make a positive change?

Covey: Listen to your conscience regarding something that you simply know you should do,then start small on it—make a promiseykeep it. Then move forwardymake a little larger promiseykeep it. Eventually you’ll discover that your sense of honor will become greater than your moods,and that will give you a level of confidenceyexcitement that you can move to other areas where you feel you need to make improvements or give service.

ZH: To give us some insight into your life,what is your typical morning routine on a work day,that incorporates some of your principles into your everyday life?

Covey
: I make an effort every morning to win what I call the “private victory.” I work out on a stationary bike while I am studying the scriptures for at least 30 minutes. Then I swim in a home pool vigorously for 15 minutes,then I do yoga in a shallow part of the pool for 15 minutes. Then I go into my libraryypray with a listening spirit,listening primarily to my conscience while I visualize the rest of my entire day,including important professional activitiesykey relationships with my loved ones,working associatesyclients. I see myself living by correct principlesyaccomplishing worthy purposes. One of my favorite quotes is,“The greatest battles of life are fought out every day in the silent chambers of one’s own soul.” (David O. McKay) Much of this listeningyvisualizing work is very challenging,so I win the private victory when I have made my mind upycommit to live by correct principlesyto serve worthy purposes.

ZH: ¿Tienes alguna idea que pueda compartir sobre el filtrado de ruido en la vida (sobre todo el ruido de la tecnología) para centrarse en las cosas que son verdaderamente importantes. ¿Cómo podemos estar seguros de que el tiempo es un factor e-mails, pero no viven en nuestra bandeja de entrada?

Covey: I am fortunate to have a very helpful team that enables me to spend time doing things that are important but not necessarily urgent. This requires the development of a personal mission statement to give a larger contextyalso the determination of what is truly important but not necessarily urgent. People who have no such team need to also make these larger decisions so that they can cheerfully say No to that which is urgent but not important. Learn to use technology in such a way as to filter out that which you really know is important to you personallyyprofessionally. Remember,technology is a great servant,but a terrible master.

ZH: ¿Cuál es su trabajo de instalación? ¿Qué herramientas utiliza? ¿Qué tipo de ordenador y el software son imprescindibles para ti? ¿Cómo configurar las cosas para optimizar su eficacia?

Covey: I work with a complementary team,which means you build on your strengthsyorganize to make your weaknesses irrelevant. Modern technology is one of my weaknesses,but my associates make this weakness irrelevant because they are superb at it. I also find most meetings are a waste of time,because they are so ill-preparedythere’s little opportunity for true synergy in producing better solutions than what anyone originally thought of. So I work hard to only attend those meetings that have strategic importanceymiss all kinds of other seemingly urgent meetings. I keep my phone number unlistedyrely on my associates to handle all voice mail,e-mail,faxes.

ZH: Además deyour books,what other reading would you recommend as indispensable,including books,magazines,websites,or blogs? Do you read blogs?

Covey: I don’t read blogs but occasionally people tell me about what they contain,and I do take questions that come from blogs,like this one. My teamyI also make occasional blog postingsywill do so moreymore in the future. I believe that the habit of constant reading of good booksyscholarly periodicalsymagazines in many disciplines is vital to give a larger perspectiveyto constantly sense the interdependent nature of life. I probably average 2 hours per day reading. I also am sent many books for endorsement purposes,which enables me to stay relevant in my own field,and I have people that help me decide which ones I should readyendorse.

ZH: ¿Has leído hacer las cosas y El Secreto? ¿Cuáles son sus pensamientos sobre los dos fenómenos?

Covey: He leído estos libros y han disfrutado de ellos y creen que contienen elementos de sabiduría y consejos prácticos. Pero para mí y mi mundo son demasiado simplistas y superficiales.

Nota del editor: El crédito es debido a mis blogs amigos Andrew Andrew jurídico de y David de LivSimpl para proporcionar un par de preguntas de la entrevista. Gracias chicos!
