“7 Habits of Happy Kids”
Sabi delved into the “7 Habits of Happy Kids,” a kid-friendly adaptation of the iconic “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.” Four of the seven habits particularly resonated with her:
- Begin with the End in Mind (Have a Plan): She realized the importance of planning ahead. Instead of randomly cutting paper for crafts, she learned to visualize her desired outcome.
- Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play): She internalized the message that schoolwork should precede fun activities at the park.
- Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best): Like Sophie in the book, Sabi loved immersing herself in stories. However, the book reminded her to prioritize other aspects of her life, such as spending time with friends, resting, and exercising.
- Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win): Sabi envisioned cultivating micro-greens on the balcony. When she encountered resistance, she refused to give up. Instead, she crafted a letter outlining a win-win plan that would benefit everyone.
