After high school I think I'm going to college and Majoring in buisness.
Habit 4: "Think Win-Win"
We can both win
Habit 5:" Seek First to Understand and, then to be Understood
So whats your point of view
I am totally pretend listening to this girl
Beginning with the end in mind means not acting in the present, but rather the future and deciding which steps you're going to take in the future. The paths you choose today shape you forever; we are free to choose our paths, but not our consequences. One way to begin with the end in mind is to make a personal mission statement, which states what your life is about or following. An example of habit 2 is a prioritizer, who procrastinates less, says no to activities, and plans ahead not slacking.
Habit 2: In Action
Should I play my favorite baseball video game or do my homework? I'll do my homework because that is more important.

If you think win-win than you have an attitude towards life that says I can win and so can you. Being insecure about yourself makes thinking win- win ten times harder than it should be. Instead of competing with others compete with yourself and think about how your actions effect peers around you. When you're no able to find a win-win solution go for no win or no deal.

We can go on the swings and slide.
Habit 5 teaches you to listen first and talk second; see things through another point of view before your own. People will open up to you when they feel genuine love and understanding, so to understand you must listen. The 3 steps to really listening are listening with your eyes, heart, and ears, standing in their shoes, and practicing mirroring. Approximately 53% of communication is body language. If you want to improve a relationship, try listening, just like you would a friend.

How would I feel if I was in his shoes? I'm going to go sit by him
I have implemented habit 2 into my life the past year mostly in school work, but also outside of school activities such as baseball. In school I'm prioritizing by putting important things first such as homework in front of less important things such as TV. At baseball I set goals and to-do lists to achieve later in the future to progressively get better.
I've developed thinking win-win into my everyday life by not thinking only I can win, but everyone can. I'm always very competitive so now instead of competing with others I compete with myself. For example, My friend and his mom wanted to play games Daytona one, but my mom and i wanted to eat. So we got a cheap deal to eat and play arcade games.

Before I read about habit 5 I always wanted to speak and make people understand me, but now I realized that I should first listen and understand them. The biggest problem I have with listening is pretend listening so I have- over the past year- been trying to cut down on how much I pretend to listen to people as they talk. I also have implemented standing in others shoes into my life to try, see, and feel the way other's view the world.
