Pukapuka Episode – 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Stephen Covey): Sam, Warena & Pera (#8)

Season 1, Ep. 8

Don’t prioritise your schedule - schedule your priorities.— Stephen Covey

This is a pukapuka episode, where a few of the bros sit down and discuss a book we’ve enjoyed, break down the kaupapa and talk about applying the book’s messages and lessons in real life. These episodes are a chance to discuss books we hope empower people to live well and be well.


In this episode, Sam takes us through the main points of Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, a business and self-help book written to help with personal growth. We talk about putting first things first and prioritising things to get the mahi (work) done. Warena talks about his routines at work as a builder-turned-software-developer, and being a student. I talk about my routine and how I manages my time with a five-year-old, two-year-old, and my various projects on the go.  We had a lot of fun recording this one, and we hope you enjoy listening.

Mauri ora,
Pera
