When all you own is a hammer, every
problem starts looking like a nail

• What significance does our paradigm have
  on our behaviour?

• How does the prior knowledge we have of a
  child effect the way we behave with that child
  and the way they behave with us?
                         Thoughts become
A man found an eagles egg and put it in the nest of a
barnyard hen. The eagle hatched with the brute of chicks
and grew up with them. All his life the eagle did what the
barnyard chicks did, thinking he was a barnyard chicken.
He scratched the earth for worms and insects, he
clucked and cackled and thrashed his wings and would
fly a few feet into the air. Years passed by and the eagle
grew very old. One day he saw a magnificent bird above
him in the cloudless sky. It glided in graceful majesty
among the powerful wind currents. The old eagle looked
up in awe „who is that?‟ he asked. „That‟s the eagle, the
king of the birds‟ said his neighbour, „he belongs to the
sky we belong to the earth, because we are chickens‟.
So the eagle lived and died a chicken, for that‟s what he
thought he was.
                      Every great
                      breakthrough is a
                      break WITH.

If you want to make minor improvements, work
on behavior and attitudes. If you want to make
quantum improvements, work on paradigms. A
paradigm is like a mental model, an assumption,
or a map.

                            Habit 1 Be proactive

 Between stimulus and response there is a
 space. In that space is our power to choose
 our response. In our response lies our
 growth and our freedom.
