The Leader in Me is a program that helps kids make good choices by learning certain habits that will help us be successful in life. For instance, Habit #2- Begin With the End in Mind. What does Begin With the End in Mind mean? It means that you should know what you are doing before you get started.
Begin With the End in Mind helps me to set goals and achieve them in a time period because I know what I need to do in order to accomplish my goals. I love Begin With the End in Mind because I can get more things done in less time.
One thing the 4th graders did was set a homework goal. We are trying to get 100% of our homework completed in February. We talked about all the things we needed to do in order to achieve this goal. Another way we have practiced Begin With the End in Mind is by researching colleges and what it takes to get there. I picked Texas A&M and I know that I have to make good grades in order to be accepted.
The Leader in Me is a tremendous program that has helped us start to make positive choices so that we can be successful in whatever we decide to do.
