Learning Tips #3

Be Proactive

(from Covey’s T7HOHEP)

OK let’s get back to our learning tips again. This time I would like draw your attention to a famous book by Stephen Covey. Maybe many of you have read this book. It has been around for a long time. One of the habits that he talked about in the book is being proactive, For students I am confident that this habit will effectively help in their learning as well. Being proactive means that as human beings, we are responsible for our own lives. Our behaviour is a function of our decisions, not our conditions. We have the initiative and the responsibility to make things happen. It is the ability to choose your response.Highly proactive people recognize the responsibility. They do not blame circumstances, conditions, or conditioning for their behaviour. Their behaviour is a product of their own conscious choice, based on values, rather than a product of their conditions, based on feeling.
