“Your life doesn’t just ‘happen.’ Whether you know it or not, it is carefully designed by you. The choices, after all, are yours. You choose happiness. You choose sadness. You choose decisiveness. You choose ambivalence. You choose success. You choose failure. You choose courage. You choose fear. Just remember that every moment, every situation, provides a new choice. And in doing so, it gives you a perfect opportunity to do things differently to produce more positive results.”—Stephen Covey
Life is full of wonders and complexities. Every day we live adds twist and color to our existence. In the lyrics of Francis Magalona’s song entitled ...view middle of the document...

By immediately, I mean after taking some time to question a few things. According to Covey, the key to a potent paradigm is a proactive mindset. Every time I hear the word proactive, my mind automatically associate it with planning and preparing. People say it is better to be proactive rather than reactive—to take a positive approach in preparation for the things to come rather than wait for them to occur before reacting instinctively. For example in my case, being proactive is anticipating and preparing my heart out for a difficult test while being reactive is blaming my teacher of giving a very hard test. So rather than focusing too much on the level of difficulty, which I cannot control, it’s better to focus my attention in studying and preparing myself for the exam.
Habit 2: Begin With The End In Mind (Principles of Personal Leadership)
It’s funny how the chapter opened literally with an end: imagine your funeral and what others there are saying and thinking about you. What do you want them to say about you? This leads to something that I consider really meaningful: writing my personal mission statement. So here’s a draft of my mission in life: As a Christian, to share the gospel and the gift of Salvation that I received from God to my loved ones. As a daughter, to provide the security and financial needs for my parents, as well as their mental well-being and health.

As a student, to learn and absorb knowledge - explore the beauties of the world that has to offer. But most important of all, master the techniques in accounting and memorize facts and details . Finally, as an individual, to have a confidence and trust myself, able to tell the limits and the capacities of my own skills, aspirations and dreams. Also letting myself to wander in daydreams and slowly turning them into reality. That’s my mission.
Habit 3: Put First Things First (Principles of Personal Management)
Majority of the things we do each day can be divided up in two different ways: they’re either urgent or not urgent, and they’re either important or not important. Most of the time, we do not want to do important things urgently just like cramming a project to reach a deadline. In order to avoid this, goals should be set and are prioritized according to their importance. Final exams are fast approaching and so is the release of the new season on HIMYM! Because watching my favorite series is not urgent, I have some flexibility on when to do them, but because my exams are important, I must schedule them and keep it on the schedule. First-line up is of course the major, Accounting. Minors are equally important but my major demands more time to practice solving and reading the theories in order to pass the subject.
