7-Habits Take Home Activity for December

This month’s Habit: Habit 2 Begin With the End in Mind

Activity: Gantt Chart

Due Date: December 21st

Habit #2 Begin with the End in Mind- "I have a plan"

What this means: Have a mission, a clear sense of where you want to go. Think about the end first- how are you going to get there?

“I plan ahead and set goals.”

“I do things that have meaning and make a difference”

“I am important part of my classroom.”

“I look for ways to be a good citizen.”

How can I do this in my life?

1. Write down your goals. It is said that "A goal not written is only a wish.”

2. Lay out your clothes for tomorrow the night before.

3. Write down 3 goals you want to accomplish.
