7 Habits at Home: Habit 2 - Begin With the End in Mind

Dr. Covey tells us that “we are programmers and that we have the ability to create our vision by identifying our purpose and setting goals.” Habit 2 encourages us to create our vision twice. First, in our mind and then the physical creation which is similar to the old saying “Measure twice, cut once.”

· Imagine that you are going to race your best friend to the neighborhood park. If you don’t know where the park is, how do you get there? Do you have a plan on how hard you will run? Which direction will you go?

· Imagine you are racing another team to complete a 100 piece puzzle. What type of puzzle is it? Do you know what the puzzle pieces are supposed to look like? How do you start? What do you think it will look like when you finish?

· Dr. Covey used the example of an orthodontist who needs to have a plan or course of treatment. A plan is needed about which teeth need to be removed, how long braces will be used, what type of retainers will be used, and how they will get to the end result of a beautiful smile.

We all can benefit from setting goals that we are determined to meet. Keeping focused, working toward the goal, following the plan, and sticking to it even if we are tired or are facing challenges are ways to Begin With the End In Mind.

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”

Nurse Notes

Dear Lone Star Families,

It seems that we have been already wearing masks for months and now here it is Halloween! CDC is not recommending traditional door to door trick or treating. But like all else 2020, there are plenty of creative ideas how participate safely. Please see the clinic website for link to CDC page on fun ideas for Halloween.

Also , below is link to MISD Covid tracker. We are once again grateful for all the healthy practices at LSE that are keeping germs away!

The last link below is to a book that Mrs. Sample, our LSE librarian extraordinaire, has in our library. Sick Simon is the story of a student who learns all about the effects of healthy habits. Please, if you could, click on the story title and take a few minutes to watch it with your kids this weekend. Hopefully, the illustrations and comical story, will help our students remember to do all the things that keep us all healthy. And keep LSE Covid tracker on the down low!
