In 1989, Stephen R. Covey published the famous book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.” Since then, it has sold more than 40 million copies in 40 languages. So why is a book about personal habits in an article about business systems? The answer is simple; the systems, or “business habits,” you either intentionally create or are naturally produced, define your business and are a significant component of its value when you sell.
