Let's stay for another 10 minutes so that we both get what we want.
We should start heading out, its beginning to rain.
Habit 5 : Seek first to understand, then to be under stood
Yes that would be very helpful , thank you for understanding.
I'm so sorry your fish died... Do you want to talk about it ?
Habit 7 : Sharpen the saw
Tommy, you can't do that. Starving yourself is an extreme measure which can hurt your body, brain, heart, and soul.
I'm so hungry, but I'm trying to only eat once a month.
Think win-win is a mentality that everyone should try to develop. To think win-win is to not think that you should win or the other person should win, you should think of a way you both should win. If you were in an argument and felt that the opposing person wasn't being fair you could try to make a way for you both to be happy. Thinking win-win can make you feel good and have a bit of stress relief.
Habit 4 - in action
No way !! I just found $100 on the ground.
I was just going to grab that. How about you take $50 and I take $50?
When you're going through a rough time you most likely want a shoulder to cry on. When you begin to talk about your problems sometimes it can be an overload for the person listening because you have no clue what they are going through. You should start by asking them how their day went and if they are doing okay. Once you've done this and truly listened it is okay to ask for some friendly advise.
Habit 5 - in action
Oh I'm so sorry. What happened ? Are you okay ?
Sometimes life can be very hard, so we fill our heads with tons of ways that we think could help fix it. Most of the time when we begin brainstorming we think of extremes that could cause harm. Sharpening the saw means to consider all 4 key dimensions of the body when making decisions. For example, when you go on an extreme diet you aren't just effecting your body's health but also your brain, heart, and soul.
Habit 7 - in action
I think that I'm going to start sleeping less so that I can get more done.
Ever since I learned about think win-win I've began trying to use it in life. When my mom and I argue about whether or not I can do something I try to compromise using win-win so that we both get what we want.
Seek first to understand , then to be understood is a really good life skill. I've been able to communicate how I feel much more freely and the trust is much stronger in my friendships.
I have had a very terrible day.
Sharpen the saw is a good habit because most of the time I don't think about the fact that if i don't get much sleep I'm hurting more than just my sleep schedule ... It throws everything off track.
You shouldn't do that bud. Not sleeping is very bad for your brain and body which is in turn bad for your heart and soul.
