12 3. Put first things first Prioritize and do the most important things first Taking Habit 2 (goals) and making them important

13 4. Think win-win Have an everyone can win attitude It’s an attitude toward life. It is the foundation for getting along well with other people

14 5. Seek first to understand then to be understood Listen to people sincerely Key to good communication. Listen first, talk second

19 1. React Blame all your problems on... Parents Stupid teachers Lousy Neighborhood Boyfriend/Girlfriend Government Something or somebody else Be a victim Take no responsibility in your life Act like an animal If you're hungry, eat If someone yells at you, yell back If you feel like doing something wrong, just do it

20 2. Begin with No End in Mind Don't have a plan Avoid goals at all costs Never think about tomorrow Why worry about the consequences of your actions? Live for the moment Sleep around Get wasted Party on, for tomorrow we die

21 3. Put First Things Last Whatever is most important in your life, don't do it until... You have spent sufficient time watching reruns Talked endlessly on the phone Surfed the Internet Lounged around Always put off homework until tomorrow Make sure that things that don't matter always come before things that do

22 4. Think Win-Lose See life as a vicious competition Your classmate is out to get you, so you'd better get him or her first Don't let anyone else succeed at anything because, remember, if they win, you lose

23 5. Seek First to Talk, Then Pretend to Listen You were born with a mouth, so use it Make sure you talk a lot Always express your side of the story first Once you're sure everyone understands your views, then pretend to listen by nodding and saying “uh-huh” Or if you really want their opinion, give it to them

24 6. Don't Cooperate Let's face it, other people are weird because they're different from you. So why try to get along with them? Teamwork is for the dogs Since you always have the best ideas, you are better off doing everything by yourself Be your own island

25 7. Wear Yourself out Be so busy with life that you never take the time to renew or improve yourself Never study Don't learn anything new Avoid exercise like the plague Stay away from good books, nature, or anything else that may inspire you
