  7. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective PeopleBy Stephen Covey • First published in 1989 • Over 15 MILLION copies sold • Proven to work • Printed in 38 languages • Over 50 awards for this book

  8. Who Cares? • This guy has basically written a book about 7 habits that humans SHOULD have, but MANY do not because of pure laziness and disrespect for the human race. “We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.” “We are not animals. We are not a product of what has happened to us in our past. We have the power of choice.”

  9. What are the 7 Habits? • Key Point #1: Highly Effective People have seven habits they continuously practice. • Be Proactive • Begin with the End in Mind • Put First Things First • Think Win-Win • Seek first to Understand, then to be Understood • Synergize • Sharpen the Saw

  10. What’s it mean to be EFFECTIVE? GREEN = a vocabulary word you should know. Write the definition! Able to accomplish a goal!

  11. What’s a HABIT?

  12. A HABIT is… • A learned behavior • A way of doing something It takes an average of 3 weeks to develop a habit.

  13. Good habits!  Exercising Studying Cleaning up after yourself Saying “please” and “thank you” Bad Habits  Smoking Cussing Spitting Ignoring authority Examples of Habits

  14. Be Proactive • Your life doesn't just "happen." Whether you know it or not, it is carefully designed by YOU. The choices, after all, are yours. You choose happiness. You choose sadness. You choose success. You choose failure. You choose courage. You choose fear.

  15. Be Proactive = Be Responsible

  16. Begin with the End in Mind What do you want to be when you grow up? • That question may seem silly, but think about it for a moment: Are you – right now – on the right path to becoming who you want to be, what you dreamed you'd be, doing what you always wanted to do? Be honest.

  17. Close your Eyes…

  20. Put First Things First • To live a more balanced life, you have to recognize that not doing everything that comes along is okay. There's NO need to over work yourself. All it takes is realizing that it's all right to say NO when necessary and then focus on your HIGHEST priorities.

  21. Put First Things First • Important Stuff First • Big Things

  22. Think Win-Win • Everyone Can Win! • Thumb War! • I want to know who the winner was, and how many times he/she won!

  23. Think Win-Win • Win-win is a frame of mind and heart. • We make decisions with other people that help us ALL.

  24. Seek First to Understand,then to be Understood • Communication is the most important skill in life. You spend years learning how to read and write, and years learning how to speak. But what about listening?

  25. Seek First to Understand,then to be Understood • Listen • Put Yourself in Others’ Shoes • “The only thing that can save us now is sensitivity and compassion.” – Tie My Hands, Lil Wayne • We have 2 ears and 1 mouth. We should listen TWICE as much.

  26. Synergize • Valuing differences is what really drives synergy. Do you truly value the emotional, psychological, and cultural differences among people? Or do you wish everyone would just agree with you? (One word: BORING!) • Differences should be seen as strengths, not weaknesses. They add zest to life!
