What happens to a bottle of soda
    when you shake it up?




                  It EXPLODES!
  When you are PROACTIVE,
you make a choice about how
  you react to the things that
  happen in your life. You act
like a water bottle. You might
   get shaken up or mad, but
    you stay calm and don’t
           explode!
What steps could you take to be
 more PROACTIVE and calm
when things aren’t going well?
   HOW PROACTIVE AM I?


. . . the degree to which I take initiative to
    improve my current circumstances or
    create new ones.
Proactive vs. Reactive
     When you are PROACTIVE, you make good
    choices about how you respond to something
    happening. You are always ready with a calm
    attitude. You do things to make sure that the
    right things will happen. You are prepared for
   anything that might happen. When things don’t
     go your way, you aren’t happy, BUT you stay
                          calm.

  When you are REACTIVE, you could explode at
  any minute. Things happen and they “catch you
  off guard”. You aren’t ready for things that might
  happen. You deal with things when they happen
              instead of being prepared.
        Where do you fall?

         Can you think of other
        examples from your life?
 Habit #2
Begin with the
 End in Mind
  Based on the work Stephen Covey
  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.
 What is “the end” for you?
  What do you hope to be
 doing ten years from now?
Twenty? Make a list of things
 you want to do in your life.
Before you figure out the
“end”, you have to take a
  look at who YOU are!

Draw a picture of something
that represents you. It could
be an animal, plant, machine,
a food, etc. Explain why you
     chose what you did.
       Mission Statement, Part 1:
 Write your name in a circle. Out from the circle, write words that
                           describe you.


artistic
                                                     athletic



                             Ben



  reader                                                 kind
Mission Statement, Part 2:
Now think about what kind of person you WANT to be.
                    Make a list.


               I want to be a:
               1.Hard worker
              2.Good student
                3.Kind person
              4.Talented artist
    Mission Statement, Part 3:
   Use the two lists to write a mission statement. This is a
sentence or paragraph about the person you want to be. Here
                      are some example:


       My mission is to:
       •Laugh a lot
       •Learn as much I can
       •Work hard at home, school and in my
       sports
       •Be kind to others
       •Take good care of myself.
       •To get better at my art.
 How good are you at beginning
    with the end in mind?



I always
                             I only
keep the
                              think
 end in
                             about
  mind.
                             today.
                Why did you rate
               yourself this way?
  How does saying “no”
 sometimes help you with
“beginning with the end in
  mind”? What things do
  you have to say no to?
   Finish these sentences:
~If I my future had no limits, I
    would choose to be…..

~I want to be a person who…
Habit #3
 Put First
Things First
 Based on the work of Stephen Covey
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.
           Going for
          Your Goals

At Home Goals    At School Goals




                    Set two or three goals for
                       at home and for at
                             school.
  Sometimes not being
 brave gets in the way
of doing things that are
    important to you.
Putting first things first
  might means putting
   aside your fears to
 reach your goal. Has
   fear ever kept you
 from doing something
   great or important?
         Explain.
    Big Things and Little Things:
Putting first things first means planning your time around the most
 important, BIG things in your life. Then, you can get to the little
                       things that take your time.

    Big, Important                       Small Things, Less
      Things That                        Important Things
    Take Your Time                      That Take Your Time
 Organizing Your Days
Write out your regular schedule for a
  full day, from start to finish. Is it
organized? Do you waste time, or put
           first things first?
                   Making it Happen
Now choose one goal for home, and one goal for school. Write your goals in a
 circle. Out from the circle, write things that you can do to help you achieve
                                   those goals.

                How could you be
                better at putting
                first things first?
 Habit #4
Think Win-Win
  Based on the work of Stephen Covey
 Is this picture a
   good one for
Think Win-Win?
 Why or why not?
If so, defend your
  answer. If not,
  design a better
 one and explain
   your thinking.
   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!

   •I’ll step on you to get ahead.
   •I am a loser. I can’t do anything.
   •At least I am better than her/him.
   •I’ll let someone else win again.
  Have you ever
   “stepped on”
 somebody else
to win? Have you
pushed someone
   aside so you
     could get
something good?
  How does this
  feel? Think an
     example.
       Human
      Doormat:
  Do you always let other people
 win? Do you not raise your hand
to answer a question because you
 know somebody will answer? Do
  you let people jump in front of
 you? Do you let people treat you
    poorly? (If so, you are not
   practicing Think Win-Win.)
 Describe a time when
you let people “step on
      you” to win.
      How To Think Win-Win
In order to Think Win-Win, you need to be confident in you. You must not care
    what others think of you. You will be happy to see others be successful.




                                                                  Make a word

                better at Think

       Habit #5
Seek First to Understand,
 Then to Be Understood
      Based on the work Stephen Covey.
       Listening Road Blocks
    Spacing Out:                    Pretend Listening:
Your mind wanders when others       You don’t really pay attention to
            talk.                      the other person, but you
                                      pretend to. You say “yeah,”,
                                          “uh-huh,” and “cool.”



       Selective                     Selfish Listening:
       Listening:                        You always bring the
                                     conversation back to you and
You listen only to the parts that   your life. You say things like “I
          interest you.               had that happen too” and “I
                                          know how you feel.”
We all have times when
 we are poor listeners.
 Which “Listening Road
  Block” do you most
often use? Explain why
     this happens.
                    I’m All Ears
Everybody wants to be listened to. When people feel like you listen, they are
more likely to like you. So, be a good listener, and you’ll have lots of friends.


 What are some ways that you can           Who is a good listener? Create a
   show people that you ARE                list of people that you know that
            listening?                                 listen well.
Listen With Your Eyes:

Sometimes you have to listen
 with your eyes as much as
  you listen with your ears.
 People say a lot with their
  body language and facial
         expressions.
          Emotion Charades:
  Find a partner. Practice ‘listening with your eyes”. Choose an
emotion to try to express just with your face and body. You can not
                             use words.


•Angry                        •Impatient                    •Confused
•Sad                          •Scared                       •Flattered
•Embarrassed                  •Worried                      •Nervous

•Thinking                     •Surprised
•Bored                        •Stressed
     Mirror, Mirror
 To be a good listener, mirror back
what someone says. Repeat back in
your own words what the person is
 saying. Use statements like “You
seem to be feeling…” and “So what
        you are saying is…”
 Have you ever had a time
 with your family or friends
  when you knew that you
 needed to “zip it” and just
listen? Why is it important
to do this sometimes? How
 does this help the person
    you are listening to?
  Are you a good listener?

              How could you be
              a better listener?

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.
  They say that,
 “Two heads are
better than one.”
Do you agree or
disagree? Why?
   Make a list of
 times when you
have to work with
 other people at
home, school, or
church, or in your
   clubs/ sports.
 Everybody is different, or unique.
In what ways is this a good thing?
   How does this help you when
 you are working with a group on
            a project?
How does everyone
being different make
    things harder?
     How can you
   overcome these
 challenges? Would
     it be easier if
  everyone had the
  same personality,
  looks, talents and
        interests?
                   Celebrate Differences:
       Pair up with someone you don’t usually work/play with.
    Come up with at least five differences and five things you have in
                                common.

Habit #7
Sharpen the
    Saw
   Based on the work of
      Stephen Covey
A man has been working
  hard to saw through a
tree for over three hours.
He still hasn’t cut through
  the tree trunk. What
might be wrong with the
man’s saw? What should
           he do?
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.
            Body:                            Brain:
Exercise, Be Healthy, Sleep, Relax      Learn, Read, Write




             Soul:                           Heart:
       Journal, Think, Pray          Serve, Laugh, Be a Friend
What do you do to take
  care of your body?
What do you NOT do?
 Could you make any
    improvements?
 How you are working to
improve your brain? What
  could you stop doing?
   What could you start
 doing? Can you think of
someone who really works
 on this area of their life?
    Brain Food
     What are your plans for
 “feeding” your brain? Make a
list of things you want to learn
 or things that you want to do
       that will teach you.
 How you are working to
improve your soul? What
  things do you do that
   make you the most
         happy?
      Feeding Your Soul
What feeds your soul?
 What inspires you
and gives you peace?
   What are some
  songs, books or
movies that make you
 want to be a better
 person? Is there a
 person that makes
  YOU want to be
       better?
Does the heart matter?
Are you serving/helping
anyone? What things do
you do to make friends
and/or to make other
people happy? Can you

really is good at this?
         Your Saw is Your Life
What makes your saw   What makes your saw
      sharp?                 dull?
          How good are you at
