Covey´s 8th habit

When I was in Africa on my extended safari-weekend self-actualization Masai Mara trip last week, I read "the seven habits of highly effective people" by Stephen R Covey, again. I read it thoroughly and I felt it was a great book that I can learn so much from. Then, in the end, I found out that there exists also a 8th habit written a while ago, about how to grow yourself into wisdom in the knowledge worker era. The 8th habit - from effectiveness to greatness!
