First Things First Song

“If you are an effective manager of your self, your discipline comes from within; it is a function of your independent will.” –Stephen Covey

Suggestions for teaching Habit 3 throughout the week:

  • Discuss and analyze how the characters you’re scholar is reading about are (or are not) putting first things first
  • Discuss and analyze morning quotes about being proactive https://www.brainyquote.com/search_results?q=first+things+first
  • Discuss or write about the practices of habit 3:
    • Focus on your highest priorities
    • Eliminate the unimportant
    • Plan every week
    • Stay true in the moment of choice
  • Have scholars discuss or write about examples in their own lives of putting first things first and any connection it has to their education at Paideia
