This narrated video briefly discusses each chapter from the book. The first chapter or habit from the book is about being proactive instead of reactive, and focusing on what you can control.
And that is exactly what reactive people do. They always focus on the things they cannot control…On the other hand, proactive people realize that even if their complaining were completely objective it does not help them. So they focus on what they can control…Habit number 1 is Be Proactive.
If I were to ask you “What are the most important things to you”, the most common answers I would get would be either your well-being or your relationships. Your family, your spouse, your children. You would never, ever say organizing papers or watching TV. But how many of us spend more time organizing papers and watching TV than planning our nutrition and going to the gym? Or cultivating a healthy family environment? There is a horrible disconnect between what we say and how we actually allocate our time. Habit number 3, Put First Things First.
