Today Jennifer wraps up the series based on Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
If the first three habits are personal or introspective and the second three are interpersonal, the seventh and final habit ties them all together.
“Sharpen the Saw”– Preserve and enhance the greatest asset you have: YOU.
No matter what you do, you do it uniquely and have been gifted and wired to do so. The best thing you can do in order to be more effective at anything is to become the best version of you.
FOUR AREAS OF GROWTH AND LEARNING (and what we can do about it)
1. Physical (exercise, eating well, stress management…)
2. Social/Emotional (learning to listen, empathize, value relationships and build into them…)
3. Spiritual (clarifying your values, finding your ‘why’, meditating, praying, reading…)
4. Mental (listening to podcasts, reading, taking (or teaching)! a class…)
Continuing to learn far after you’re out of school, having a “lifestyle of learning”, increases our effectiveness at anything.
THIS WEEK: list two tasks in each area of growth (Physical, Social/Emotional, Spiritual, Mental) that you will be mindful of, that you would like to improve upon. Make yourself aware of these changes you want to make, even if you don’t nail them 100% of the time.
If you don’t change, the world around you probably won’t change either.
Whether your world is 4 people or 4 million people, you have an impact on it.
