The 7 Habits Crash Course On the next slide is a chart with numbers from 1 to 54. Your challenge is to find each number on the chart, starting at 1, then 2, then 3 and so on, all the way to 54.

A Framework A paradigm is your perception, point of view, or the way you see the world. A paradigm shift is when your point of view is changed by new beliefs, knowledge or information. A principle is a natural law that is timeless, universal and self-evident. Gravity Honesty, hard work, respect, service, focus, patience etc.
