Thoughtful Thursday



"The first choice we make each and every day is, "Will we act upon life, or will we merely be acted upon?"  

Stephen Covey 

This week my days have been full of Stephen Covey's, "The Seven Habits of High Effective People".  The school district where I teach has adopted  this model for all students and, as a consequence, all teachers are receiving formal training in Mr. Covey's design.  

Informative, why yes it is.  It is also inspiring, thought provoking, and influential. 

So, all of you, get out there and be proactive, begin with the end in mind, and put first things first! 

Because, as the teacher, I said so.  

Have a great Thursday my friends.
