7. Sharpen the Saw
From the 7 habits mentioned above, I would pick 3. Put First Things First, 4. Think Win-Win and 7. Sharpen the Saw into real life.
Put first thing first.
Pirority is very important as everything has a due time and date, opportunity will only appear once maybe in the entire life, once you miss the chance, you can’t chase it back.
Think win win
People always put themselves in the first place in any situation, but learning to care about the others would build up a continuous relationship and create more opportunities in the future.
Sharpen the Saw
Knowledge is an essential element for a person to grow, without growing, means falling. So continuous education would be a good way to sharpen the saw and more likely to be successful in the future.
College is a micro reflection of the real would, if I can be successful in college, I would more likely be successful in the future, in the real world too.
Workplace is full of challenges and problems come to you every single day, in order to deal with all of them, getting well prepare from habit would be a proactive way to solve all the troubles.
