The seven habits described in this book were being proactive, Beginning with the end in mind, put first things first, think win-win, seek first to understand, then to be understood; synergize, and sharpen the saw. The first habit Being proactive means not to make choices on impulse. it means to evaluate the situation before making a desicion. for example, two years ago when i had friends that talked behind my back i just moved on and found better friends rather than be mean to them or excluding them out of my way. The second habit Beginning with the end in mind means to think ahead at what your goals are and start working towards them.

We were also showed the difference between being reactive and practice and the idea that a stimulus creates a choice to a response and how to use that tactic when working on group projects, an example that the speaker used were Pavlov’s dogs. Since this was the first class, we also played introductory games as we could learn each other’s names as if we do not know the names of the people we are working with, how can we be effective leaders?
