Successfull relations are built upon trust.
Covey also gives great examples and explanations about balancing all the aspects of your life, spirit, mind and body as well as a balance among all your relationships.
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People are:
1- Be Proactive: This means taking always the initiative.
2- Begin with the end in mind: This refers to focusing on your goals .(you can refer to this post in order to learn more about how to manage your time to accomplish your goals).
3- Put First things first: This refers to setting up priorities.
4- Think Win/Win: We only win when others win.
5- Seek first to understand then to be understood: Probably one of the most important habits (at least in my opinion). In order to have effective communication we need to learn to listen first.
