The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Kids

Habit 1: Be Proactive

You're in charge of yourself. Do the right thing without being asked, even if no one is watching.

Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind.

I plan ahead and set goals.

Habit 3: Put First Things First

I work first and then play. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. I stay focused. I am organized.

Habit 4, Think Win-Win.

I am a peaceful problem-solver. I think about what others want, and not just about what I want.

Habit 5. Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood.

I listen to other people's ideas and feelings without interrupting. I listen before I talk. I try to see things from another person's point of view.

Habit 6: Synergize

I get along with others and work well in groups. I value other's strengths and learn from them. I know that by working together as a team, I can get more done than I can working alone.

Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw

I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep. I enjoy family and friends and balance my time with them. I find meaningful ways to help others. I pray often. I talk to Jesus who is my friend. I go to Mass to worship.
