These past weeks have been fun because I've gotten to teach these habits to my AVID students, and they are about to read 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Covey. The students will be enthused to know that we have already been practicing the habits, and now we will be able to sharpen the saw together, as a class. We enjoy referring to our AVID class as a club, especially because we focus on so many life-skills that require transparency and an open mind.
I am excited to sharpen the saw, as I need these habits as a leader. No one habit is greater than another, which is great because I can spend my time focusing on all of them so that I can become a well-rounded, well-equipped leader. I must admit, though, that putting first things first is something I need to focus on at the moment, as opportunities seem to always come my way and it's difficult for me to say no. If I can manage the ability to focus on essential tasks, then I can devote more time to setting up ways to sharpen the rest of the saw.
