Ok, so you might know what the 7 Habits For Highly Effective People are, but if you don’t basically they are these 7 habits that this guy Steven Covey wrote about how to be a more effective person. Habit 1 is Be Proactive, Habit 2 is Begin With the End in Mind, Habit 3 is Put First Things First, Habit 4 is Think Win-Win, Habit 5 is Seek First to Understand Then to Be Understood, Habit 6 is Synergize, and Habit 7 is Sharpen the Saw. We did a project on them for Maker this year where we made different choice boards and if you know me then you know I love to make animations, so most of my choice board activities are animations which I will put right here:
I am going to list a few ways that I am using the 7 habits currently; I am being proactive by not caring when someone says an insult or something similar. I am sharpening the saw by always trying to improve myself in different ways.
Here are also a few ways that I plan to use the 7 habits in the future; I plan to think Win-Win in the future by sharing things when I can, and believing that nothing is a 0 sum game, and by doing this I think that it will help me to be more considerate whenever I can. I plan to put First Things First in the future by learning to prioritize more important and more urgent projects before less important and less urgent projects.
I think that I am using technology to my advantage currently by using it to do tasks that would be more difficult without the technology, like writing the blog post I am writing right now, as I need technology to put it up onto the internet, and I tend to write faster when I am using a keyboard vs a pencil and paper. Another way that I am using technology to my advantage is by making animations, which is not really possible with just pencil and paper. I plan on using technology to my advantage in the near future by using it to complete future projects faster, and to do things like make videos for future assignments. I plan on using technology to my advantage in the long term by programming, which I think could be a possible future career for myself in the future.
During this project I also made three different things:
A voice note for my audio idea
A animation for my video idea
And a wire sculpture for my kinaesthetic idea
This represents habits 1 and 2. The man is being proactive by committing to his path and overcoming roadblocks. The man began with the end in mind as he brought a rope because he knew that there would be roadblocks that he had to overcome
Thank you for reading my blog and have a great day
