Habit 2 -- Begin with the End in Mind

What it Means

  • To begin with the end in mind is to begin with the image of the end of your life as the frame of reference by which everything else is measured.
  • We may be busy, we may be efficient, but we will only be effective if we begin with the end in mind.

By Design or Default

There is a first creation to every part of our lives. We are either the second creation of our own proactive creation, or we are the second creation of other people's agendas, of circumstances, or of past habits.

Leadership and Management

  • Management is doing things right, leadership is doing the right things.
  • Often people get into managing with efficiency, setting and achieving goals before they have even clarified values.

A Personal Mission Statement Franklin Covey Mission Statement Builder

  • The most effective way to begin with the end in mind is to develop a personal mission statement.
  • The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are, what you are about, and what you value.
  • Once you have a sense of mission, you have the essence of your own proactivity; the vision and values which direct your life, the basic direction from which you set your goals.

At the Center

  • Whatever is at the center of our life will be the source of our security, guidance, wisdom, and power.
  • What is at the center of your life?
