As a Child

images (3)

Good Morning, my Beautiful Sister. Yesterday, was my first Toastmaster’s meeting. As new members, we’re to create an “Ice Breaker” introducing ourselves to the group. Well, this morning as I contemplated, before rising from bed, my thoughts went to my mother, then to me and then to my daughters. Finally, they took me to a place in time (several months ago) when I was talking with my grandson, Mackey (we were playing with TAPN2U cards), and he shared with me the Seven Habits of a Child. (I didn’t know there was such a guideline :-)) We went to the computer, I googled it, found a site and printed it out. When I read it, it amazed me how these Seven Habits of a Child is the way to live LIFE (however you define LIFE to be).

Retrieving my black & white copy, from my silver-plated case, I place the print on my office desk within eyesight, so that I may use this platform and share it with you: Here Goes:

Habit #1: Be Proactive: Owning responsibility.
Habit #2: Begin with the End in Mind – Have the Intention…
Habit #3: Put First Things First (Prioritize) Mine are God first, Family second, Career third (Learned this one from when I was a Mary Kay consultant).
Habit #4: Think Win/Win: Everyone can win. Balancing courage for manifesting wants with Consideration for the wants of others. Team work makes the Dream work.
Habit #5: Seek first to Understand, then to be Understood.
Habit #6: Synergize: Together is Better. Valuing Self & Others.
Habit #7: Sharpen The Saw. Having time to care for self, time with family and friends, learn and serve.

Hummm, come As a Child, sounds familiar to me. Does it to you???
