• Habit 1: Be Proactive
        I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods.  I do not blame others for my wrong actions.  I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.


      • Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
        I plan ahead and set goals.  I do things that have meaning and make a difference.  I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school’s mission and vision.  I look for ways to be a good citizen.


      • Habit 3: Put First Things First
        I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan.  I am disciplined and organized.


      • Habit 4: Think Win-Win
        I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want.  I make deposits in others’ Emotional Bank Accounts.  When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives.


      • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood
        I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings.  I try to see things from their viewpoints.  I listen to others without interrupting.  I am confident in voicing my ideas.  I look people in the eyes when talking.


      • Habit 6: Synergize I value other people’s strengths and learn from them
        I get along well with others, even people who are different than me.  I work well in groups.  I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions than anyone of us can alone.  I am humble.


      • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
        I take care of my body by eating right, exercising and getting sleep.  I spend time with family and friends.  I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school.  I find meaningful ways to help others.
