1 Sharpen the Saw It’s Me Time

2  Think about someone who irritates you.  What is different about them?  What can you learn about them? Write a journal entry answering the questions above. When you’re done writing your entry, get the 7 Habits book and return to your seat.

3  Habit 1 ◦ Be Proactive  Habit 2 ◦ Begin With The End In Mind  Habit 3 ◦ Put First Things First  Habit 4 ◦ Think Win-Win  Habit 5 ◦ Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood  Habit 6 ◦ Synergize

4 Definition: Renew yourself regularly  Sometimes we are too busy to take time to do the things we need to do to keep fresh.  We need to regularly renew and strengthen four key areas. ◦ The Body – The Physical Dimension ◦ The Brain – The Mental Dimension ◦ The Heart – The Emotional Dimension ◦ The Soul – The Spiritual Dimension

5  Tires on a car ◦ If one tire is out of balance, all four tires wear unevenly.  It’s really hard to be in a good mood (emotional) when you’re so tired (physical).  Also, when you are in tune with yourself (spiritual), it is easier to stay focused on your school work (mental).

6  Taking care of your body is important  There are 4 key ingredients to a healthy body: ◦ Good sleeping habits ◦ Physical relaxation ◦ Good nutrition ◦ Proper exercise

7  It’s all about how you feel, not how you look.

8  There are also ways to destroy your body.  Using addictive substances such as alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is a great way to destroy your body.  When you become addicted, you are no longer in control—your addiction is!

9  Sharpen your mind  Receiving a good education can be the most important thing you ever do  Education is an investment in your future. “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.” -Derek Bok, former president of Harvard University

10  There are hundreds of ways to sharpen your mind. Here are a few: Read the newspaper everyday Travel Plant a garden Observe wildlife Watch Discovery Channel Visit the library Listen to the news Write a story, poem, or song Play challenging board games Play sudoku or crosswords Play chess Visit a museum Attend a ballet, opera, or play Learn to play a musical instrument

11  Screentime: Any time spent in front of a screen (i.e. computer, tv, video game, movie, etc.)  Nerd Syndrome: Not wanting to be the “brains” at school for fear of others not liking you because you’re smart or intimidating  Pressure: Afraid to bring home good grades because it will put pressure on you to do it again.

12  Put regular deposits into your personal and relationship bank accounts  Sex & Relationships  Just laugh… ◦ Sometime life just stinks and there’s not much we can do about it. ◦ One study showed that a Kindergartener laughs about 300 times a day. The typical adult laughs only 17 times a day. ◦ Laughing loosens up the mental gears, reduces stress levels, relaxes us, and lowers blood pressure.

13  Finding what deeply inspires you, finding your inner self where your deepest convictions and values are  How to feed your soul ◦ Meditating ◦ Serving others ◦ Praying ◦ Listening to music ◦ Drawing ◦ Praying ◦ Going for a walk

14  You can pour your heart out in your journal and it will sit there and listen. It won’t talk back!  A good way to clear your head become more self-aware.  You can read past entries to keep from making the same mistakes and to see how you have matured.

15  You are probably already doing many things to renew yourself ◦ Working hard at school? That’s renewing your mind! ◦ In athletics or gym? That’s renewing your body! ◦ Developing friendships? That’s renewing your heart!  Sharpening the saw won’t just happen. You have to be proactive and work at it!  Take the time to sharpen the saw in your life!
