The 7 Habits
Highly Effective Teens The seven habits, my definition of each,
and a personal example. 1st Habit 2nd Habit Put First Things First Seek First To Understand Then To Be Understood Think Win-Win Sharpen the Saw Being proactive is thinking about your choices so you can make the best ones. It's always trying to lean towards positive actions. Be proactive by always working towards the better. When you begin with the end in mind, you are working towards a greater goal, or an end game. You are working towards a reward with the best intentions. You are looking at what you want to have accomplished by the time you reach that goal. Putting first things first means that you take those errands that need to be done, and doing them before getting distracted and carrying out unimportant things. For example, watching your favorite TV show before doing homework. Thinking win-win helps you to look at different situations and say there's a way that I can get something good, and you can too. If you're going to speak, you must first be a good listener. Synergizing is working together and compromising with others for the best outcome in a situation. To me, sharpening the saw means taking a step back from everything, and taking time to relax and meditate on what's been happening. By: Ana Pestana Be Proactive Begin
With The End In Mind Habit 3 Habit 4 Habit 5 Synergize Habit 6 Habit 7 Covey, Sean. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens: The
Ultimate Teenage Success Guide. New York: Simon & Schuster, 1998. Print. "I am the force." "I am in the driver's seat of my destiny, not just a passenger." "Since you're the driver, decide where you want to go and draw a map to get there." You choose where you're going to go in life. "Get there! Don't let roadblocks knock you off course." Have the power to say yes to your most important things, and strength to say no to less important things and peer pressure. A good outcome leads to more good outcomes. Win-win starts a chain reaction of good. "Listen first, talk second." "The deepest need of the the human heart is to be understood." "Synergy is achieved when two or more people work together to create a better solution than either could alone. It's not your way or my way but a better way, a higher way." "When you're feeling motivated and in tune with yourself (soul), it's easier to focus on your studies (mind) and to be more friendly (heart)." One way I'm proactive, is how I'm always consistent in checking powerschool. I make sure I have the grades needed to excel and move towards more difficult classes and success. I practice this habit by planning my day the night before. I plan what I'm going to wear to the way I want my evening to go. Another way I practice this habit is in how I'm planning my high school career. I want to get good grades so I can get into AP classes, and stay on my sport team, and reassure myself that I'm good enough to get into a good college. As the oldest child in the family, I have to put my siblings needs before my own. They are younger than me, and can't take care of things like I do. When my parents are at work, I make my brothers food before my own, or I buy them something nice to keep them happy. In return, I get the reassurance of knowing I'll be closer to them in the long run, and a good feeling when my youngest brother runs to my parents telling them how I bought him something nice. Whenever my family goes out to eat, there's always the chorus of restaurant suggestions. My brothers want to go here, my mom wants to go there, my dad likes this place, and I think it would be best to try that place. But in the end, what ends up happening, is we take into account all the places we've gone to in the past week or two, and compromise on where to go. That way it's a win-win. My parents are really fond of giving me advice. I trust their opinions so I always try to follow it. It helps me let them know that I trust their good judgement, and listen to what they say. I am part of the tennis team. All of us have to play hard in our individual matches for the good of the team. If we're going to move up in the high school ranks, we all have to contribute to the final scores. I sharpen the saw each week. On Sundays, I clean out my backpack and notebooks, I sleep in and relax, and I also take some quiet time for myself. "One should guard against preaching to young people success in the customary form as the main aim in life. The most important motive for work in school and in life is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result and the knowledge of the value of the result to the community."
Albert Einstein. "A man who gives his children habits of industry provides for them better than by giving them fortune."
-Richard Whately "Cultivate only the habits that you are willing should master you."
-Elbert Hubbard "Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do."
-Shaquille O'Neal "First we make our habits, then our habits make us."
-Charles C. Noble "A man of ability and the desire to accomplish something can do anything."
-Donald Kircher ":Many of the greatest achievements of the world were accomplished by tired and discouraged men who kept on working."
