Habit 2: Begin with the end in mind

Alice: Would you tell me please which way I ought to walk from here?

Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.

Alice: I don’t much care where.

Cat: Then it doesn’t matter which way to walk.

What will people do before…
• building a house?
• baking a cake?
• writing an essay?
• starting to put together a 1000 pieces jigsaw puzzle?
Imagination
• Focus on my voice
Imagination

You see someone walking toward you. At first, you can’t see who it is. As this person gets closer and closer, you suddenly realize that it is you. It is not you today but it is you one year from now.

Imagination

Suppose you are now in Secondary 1, is the ‘you’ after one year still in Secondary 1?

What are ‘you’ doing? Playing basketball? Playing violin? Study hard in the library? Or staying in the detention room?

Imagination

Suppose you are now in Secondary 5, is the ‘you’ after one year study hard for DSE. As ‘you’ flies over time and gets your DSE result slip, what is it like? Flying colour? Or just 3-3-2-2.

It is so important to have an end in mind
• You are at a critical crossroads in life, and the paths you choose now can affect you forever.
• If you don’t decide your own future, someone else will do it for you.
• Do you want to go to college or graduate school?
• What will your attitude toward life be?
• Should you try out for that team?
• What type of friends do you want to have?
• Will you join a gang?
• Who will you date?
• Will you have sex before marriage?
• Will you drink, smoke, do drugs?
• What values will you choose?
• What kind of relationships do you want with your family?
• What will you stand for?
• How will you contribute to your community?
• Remember: The paths you choose today can shape your future!

You know how much powerful the influence your friends can do on your attitude, direction and values!

Chinese Wisdom

One who stays near vermilion gets stained red, and one who stays near ink gets stained black

How do you choose friends?

Based on whoever will accept you

OR

Based on values and principles

It is better to have no friends for a time than to have the wrong friends

Christian friendship

That is the essence of Christian friendship. Beyond common interests, beyond affection, beyond wit and laughter is the ultimate aim of sowing in others the words of eternal life, leaving them with reminders of God’s wisdom, refreshing their spirit with words of His love, and strengthening their grip on God.

If you wait until the ‘heat of the moment’ to choose which path to take, it’s too late.

You need to decide now!

The path you choose will affect your health, your self-image, how fast you grow up, whom you marry, your future children

You are free to choose your paths, but you can’t choose the consequences that come with them.

Control your own destiny or someone else will!

Q: Who?

Q: But I don’t want to think about the future and just go with the flow.

A: Where the flow goes? Usually downhill, leading to big pile of sludge.

A Personal Mission Statement

It is like the blueprint in your life

Like a constitution to a country and mission statements to a company.

Reflection

What are ‘you’ doing after a year. Share with your teacher.
