“We only get one chance to prepare children for a world none of us can possibly predict, what are we going to do with that one chance?”

--Principal Muriel Summers, A.B. Combs Elementary

 

Habit 1 — Be Proactive

You're in Charge

 

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 2 — Begin With the End in Mind

Have a Plan

 

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.

I look for ways to be a good citizen.

 

Habit 3 — Put First Things First

Work First, Then Play

 

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 4 — Think Win-Win

Everyone Can 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 5 — Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

Listen Before You Talk

 

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 6 — Synergize

Together Is Better

 

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 because I know that by teaming with others,

we can create better solutions than anyone of us can alone.

I am humble.

 

 

Habit 7 — Sharpen the Saw

Balance Feels Best

 

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, not just at school.

I find meaningful ways to help others.
