Covey's seven habits

Habit One: Be Proactive

•I have a "Can Do" attitude. •I choose my actions, attitudes and moods. •I don't blame others. •I do the right thing without being asked, even if nobody is looking.

Habit Two: 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. •I look for ways to be a good citizen.

Habit Three: Put First Things First

•I spend my time on things that are most important. •This means I say no to things I should not do. •I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. •I am organized.

Habit Four: Think Win-Win

•I want everyone to be a success. •I don't have to put others down to get what I want. •It makes me happy to see other people happy. •I like to do nice things for others. •When a conflict arrives, I help brainstorm a solution. We all can win!

Habit Five: Seek First To Listen, 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.

Habit Six: Synergize

•I value other people's strengths and learn from them. •I get along well with others, even people who are different from me. •I work well in groups. •I seek out other people's ideas to solve problems. •I know that "two heads are better than one". •I am a better person when I let other people into my life and work.

Habit Seven: Sharpen the Saw

•I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep. •I spend time with family and friends.
