The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

I borrowed Prabath's copy recently and my gut feeling tells me it's going to be a good read, after just reading the first chapter. Grab a copy if you haven't already. Here's a teaser ...

"Being effective as individuals and organizations is no longer optional in today’s highly
competitive world – it is simply the price of entry to the playing field. But surviving,
thriving, innovating, excelling, and leading in this new reality will require us to build on
and reach beyond effectiveness. The call and need of a new era is for greatness. It’s
for fulfillment, passionate execution, and significant contribution. These are on a
different plane or dimension. They are different in kind, just as significance is different in
kind, not in degree, from success. Tapping into the higher reaches of human genius and
motivation – what we can call voice – requires a new mind-set, a new skill-set, a new
tool-set . . . a new habit."
