Seven Habits


Beard Elementary: A Lighthouse School


The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People


What are the Seven Habits?

Habit 1    Be Proactive

          First I think then I make a choice.  Everything I do is a choice.

Habit 2    Begin with the End in Mind

          I think about what I want, then I do what will make it happen.

Habit 3    Put First Things First

            I only THINK and DO what is most important.

Habit 4    Think Win Win

        We think of a solution where no one gives up anything and everyone wins.

Habit 5    Seek First to Understand then to be Understood

        First, I listen to others so that I may understand them.  Then I repeat their thoughts back.

Habit 6    Synergize

         Because we have different strengths, we can work together to create a better idea than we could alone. 

Habit 7    Sharpen the Saw

        I will take care of my body and brain, make deposits in emotional bank accounts and do what I know is right.
