Transcript of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective teens

By Wyatt Cowell The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens Habit #1 - Be Proactive Habit #7 - Sharpen The Saw Set goals for yourself
Put your goals into action
Have a better attitude about life
Discover what can be improved in your day to day activities, and focus on improving that aspect of your life.
Take responsibilities for your mistakes, and focus on doing better next time. Put the important things in life first and everything else will fit in and around them.
Prioritize your life so that homework, family, jobs, and relationships come before partying, watching TV, and other unimportant aspects of your life.
Putting the important things in life last will inhibit you from succeeding in school, family, or at work.
Plan to do things at a certain time, and they will be more likely to get done. Habit #3 - Put First Things First When in a disagreement, try to understand the other person's side first before you try to argue that you are right.
Apply win-win to a disagreement so that everyone is happy with the end result.
Let the other person give their opinion first, so they feel understood, and so an argument is avoided.
Don't just pretend to listen to the other person's side first, but instead focus on what they are saying and then repeat it back to them so they know you heard and understood them. Habit #5 - Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood Be open to other people's ideas. By listening to them, you may come up with an idea that you may not have otherwise come up with.
Never ignore the ideas of those around you. If you listen to them, they will be more willing to give their ideas and progress will be much smoother.
Celebrate differences instead of reject people for their differences.
Surround yourself with others who have different thought processes as you. This will allow for more variety in the discussion topic.
When you synthesize, people will feel more accepted and it will relieve tension between individuals. Habit #6 - Synergize Taking time to yourself to 'sharpen the saw' will allow for your current task to seem easier when you return to it.
Take time for your physical health, your mind, soul, and social life. If you do all of these, you will be completely recovered and will be able to return to the task at hand.
Keep a hobby that can distract and relax you from your hard day.
Habit #2 - Begin With The End In Mind Habit #4 - Think Win-Win Always think of where you are going, and how you can get there.
Plan for tomorrow and always make goals for what is ahead.
When making goals, always make sure they are attainable and realistic for the task.
Before making a decision, Focus on how this will affect others and what you can do to avoid negative consequences. Life isn't a competition. Take every opportunity that others around you succeed as well.
People will appreciate the the win-win attitude more than the win-lose attitude and will allow for you to excel even further in life.
Think of how other would feel about your decision, and put yourself in their shoes. If you feel they would be hurt by your decision, then don't do it. There are seven habits that teens should follow in order to improve their social,
work, and school lives. These techniques will also reduce sress, tension, and diffuse arguments in the life of a teenager. These seven habits are: Be Proactive, Begin With The End In Mind, Put First Things First, Think Win-Win, Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood, Synergize, and Sharpen The Saw. If a teen followed every one of these habits, their lives in general would become so much easier to handle, and their lives would become highly affective. If we carry these habits into our adult life, we will succed on every level.
