    From the best-selling book ?The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People? by
    popular and influential author Stephen R. Covey comes different principles that
    lead to effectiveness from high and satisfying work performance. Since the
    principles have been introduced, the human resources sector has never been
    the same again. Now, it has working principles and frameworks that serve
    as guidance for employees who strive to do better and increase productivity
    within and outside the workplace.

    Focus should be given to the second principle for highly effective people, as
    structured under Covey?s highly publicized book. The principle advises people
    to ?begin initiatives with the end result in mind?. You may readily infer that
    this assertion is intended to convince people to be results-oriented and at the
    same time be more productive. Looking further into the essence of the
    statement would definitely point to that direction.

    This second habit of highly effective people is mainly based in a premise that
    initiatives can be divided into two groups: the first being those conceived on
    mind and the second being initiatives done through action. As such, many
    experts claim that numerous aggressive endeavors fail because of failure on
    the mindset. Thus, human resources personnel and corporate managements
    would always strive to set a mindset among employees and staff that would
    lead to attainment of targets and overall productivity.

    The most convenient and effective measure on how to start initiatives with the
    end result in mind is to initially formulate a working personal mission
    statement. Such a statement would have a person set goals and formulate
    ways on how such targets would be attained. Such is a usual activity of highly
    organized people.

    By setting a goal, you are becoming more proactive. You would eventually
    observe that you are becoming highly organized because your thoughts and
    ideals are more targeted to the attainment of goals, which you yourself or your
    boss may have set. By having a personal mission statement, you would notice
    that your own actions and mindset are regulated to take the direction that
    would lead to productivity and success.

    When you set your goals and your targets, it is imperative that you identify a
    center of life where guidance, wisdom, security, power and inspiration could be
    sourced out. To find this on a personal level, you have to first know yourself
    and define your priorities in life. In doing so, you would find that yourself is
    centered on one specific factor, that can be about money, power, work, self,
    pleasure, possession, family, spouse or company. Knowing yourself well calls
    for knowing what your main priority and target is. To set a goal for your
    initiatives, it would significantly help if you would determine the center of your
    priorities.

    Once you set your goal, you would find that you are smooth-sailing to doing
    endeavors and efforts that would clearly and obviously lead to attainment of
    such a target. Thus, Covey?s second principle is a necessity on a personal and
    management level. It is useful on a personal basis if you would use the
    principle to improve your performance and boost productivity. It is useful on
    the management level if your company is setting or imposing goals to give
    direction to your productivity and professional performance.
