    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Students
    Habit One: Be Proactive
    I am a responsible person.
    I take initiative.
    I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods.
    I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked,
    even when no one is looking.

    Habit Two: Begin with the End in Mind
    I plan ahead and set goals
    I do things that have meaning and make a difference.
    I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school’s mission and vision,
    and look for ways to be a good citizen.

    Habit Three: Put First Things First
    I spend my time on things that are most important.
    This means I say no to things I know I should not do.
    I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan.
    I am disciplined and organized.

    Habit Four: Think Win - Win
    I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want.
    I make deposits in others’ Emotional Bank Accounts.
    When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives.

    Habit Five: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
    I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings.
    I try to see things from their viewpoints.
    I listen to others without interrupting.
    I am confident in voicing my ideas.
    I look people in the eyes when talking.

    Habit Six: Synergize
    I value other people’s strengths, and learn from them. I get along well with others, even
    people who are different than me.
    I work well in groups.
    I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with
    others we can create better solutions than any one of us alone. I am humble.

    Habit Seven: Sharpen the Saw
    I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep.
    I spend time with my family and friends.
    I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school.
    I take time to make meaningful ways to help others.
