a. Who is the author of the book and what are the 7 habits?

The author of the book is Stephen Covey.

7 Habits are:

Habit 3: Put first things first

Habit 4: Think Win-Win

Habit 5: Seek first to understand, then to be understood

Habit 6: Synergize

Habit 7: Sharpen the saw

b. Choose 3 of these habits that you feel are in alignment with your own personality/traits and discuss why you feel that way.

I want to choose three of habits which are ‘be proactive,’ ‘Think Win-Win,’ and ‘Sharpen the saw.’ I always pursue to be proactive because I would like to discover my new future life, and I believe that personality is formed by difference of circumstance. Second, I always pursue successful situation. In fact, I have experienced failure many times, but even though I have got failure many times, I constantly prefer win-win. Finally, I always want to understand each of person’s point of view because I believe that difference is beautiful.

c. How will you apply these habits to your educational career?

I will apply my habit to my educational career by discovering differences from each personality. Sometimes, I cannot understand other’s countries habit and culture. Even if I got a failure because of lack of understanding, I want to keep up successful mind and optimistic attitude.

d. How could you apply these habits in the workplace?

I will apply these habit in my work place. In my case, I want to be a missionary and a pastor. In every time, I have to discover my way because it is always not able to grantee in my future. For right things, I have to keep up my mind, and even if I got a failure, I would never give up in every situation. Moreover, I should understand each country’s culture because if missionary make a problem because of lack of understanding, it is difficult to spread missionary’s purpose. Therefore, I always try to understand other’s habits and think that difference is beautiful.
