    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

    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
    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
    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

     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

    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 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 anyone of us can alone. I am humble. 

    Habit 7
    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.
