7 Habits of Highly Effective Kids
From: The Leader in Me by Stephen Covey

1. Be Proactive
I have a “Can Do” attitude. I choose my actions, attitudes and moods.
I don’t blame others. I do the right thing without being asked, even if
nobody is looking.

2. 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 school. I look for ways to be a
good citizen.

3. Put First Things First
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.

4. Think Win-Win
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!

5. Seek First to Understand
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.

6. Synergize
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.

7. Sharpen the Saw
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.
