#93 put into practice three-seven habits for success

2 Feb

Aye! Today was a crazy day at my work my friends. The kiddos were all out of sorts today. It’s always something. Since it was a slightful stressful day at work, I am pulling todays get happy tidbit from the “Put your career on a happy track” chapter. We’ve all heard of the 7 habits of highly effective people, which I will list a little bit further down. It is suggested that we establish three new habits and then expand to seven. The following habits are listed in the book:

  • learn to manage your time and not waste it
  • be curious and have a desire to always be learning
  • practice self-discipline because your motivation and work ethic depend on it
  • always follow through and complete what you start
  • be of service to others
  • do the right thing, show your integrity
  • keep your word

And the 7 habits of highly effective people per Stephen Covey?:

  • be proactive
  • begin with the end in mind
  • put first things first
  • think win/win
  • seek first to understand, then be understood
  • synergize
  • sharpen the saw

Here are my habits (as of 6:28 pm February 3rd, 2011)

  • get work done when it needs to be done (no procrastination)
  • be purposeful with my words and actions
  • be nicer than necessary
  • focus on small positives and not the big negatives of situations

Make your list and post it somewhere (I’m about to write mine in my many journals and planners!)
