Update on the Graduates pt 2

Stephen Manhanga is going through a book called “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens” with the graduates. To recap: Habit 1 is be proactive and Habit 2 is begin with the end in mind. The graduates were tasked to write their mission statements.

Some thoughts as a guideline:
1. Think of a person who has made a positive difference in your life. What qualities would you like to emulate?
2. Imagine 20 years from now –you are surrounded by the most important people in your life. Who are they and what are you doing?
3. Describe a time when you were deeply inspired.
4. List 10 things you LOVE to do.
5. If you could spend a day in a great library studying anything you wanted, what would you study?
6. If three of your closest friends had to say something about you, what would you want them to say?
7. Think of something that represents you i.e. a rose, a song, an animal etc, etc
8. If you could spend an hour with any person who ever lived, who would it be? Why that person and what would you ask?
9. Everyone has one or more talents. What are yours?
10. If you had to risk your life for something or someone, what or who would it be for: your pet, your brother, fame, money..........?

These are some great guidelines to get the graduates going on their Mission Statements. We’ll see what they come up with.
