"You ruined my day" - From Sean Covey's "The 7 Habits of Successful Teenagers" It is about thinking beyond today and
deciding which direction to take, so each
step is in the right direction. You are the driver of your life and not the passenger. What's your map look like? . . Last Minute Rabbit Later Gater The Yes Monkey Planning Squirrel Four types of Students "Exam tomorrow!"

Relaxed Find your courage... * Never let fear make your decisions
* Winning means rising each time you fall
* Be strong in the hard moments
* Overcome peer pressure Which one are you? It's not about just you, but others too. "I scored. My teammates
did a great job setting me up." Many people think in terms of either/or: either you’re nice or you’re tough. Win-win requires that you be both. It is a balancing act between courage and consideration. If you and a friend can't decide which of two things to do, do one and the next time do the other, or split time between two. Pretend listening - Are you talking to someone in person and texting someone else at the same time... "Yeah...sure...uh huh..... yeah" Is that a conversation? Self-centered listening - everything is from only your point of view. "Oh that's nice. But, what does it have to do with ME?" Genuine listener - listen with your eyes, heart and ears. You can stand in their shoes - do you know how the other person feels? How to become a genuine listener...

Practice mirroring - mirrors don't judge,
they don't give advice. They reflect. What kind of teammate are you? Do you take ownership of:
your choices
your learning
improving and getting better in every opportunity HABIT #7
Sharpen the Saw You can take many hours (or days) to try to cut down the tree with a dull saw. OR... You can take a few hours to sharpen the saw and get the job done quicker. Take care of ourselves
