7 1/2 Habits....My Thoughts

After studying the 7 1/2 Habits, I was struck by the extent to which these principles guide our everyday work at the library. We are in the lifelong learning business - the business of empowerment. From birth to death, we provide our customers with the necessary tools to learn, grow and succeed.

Personally, I find Habit 6 to be the easiest. Whether teaching a customer or a loved one, the process affords me the opportunity to improve my knowledge/skils of the subject matter. Teaching fosters a true sense of understanding. I can't teach others, if I don't know myself.

On the other hand, I find Habit 7 1/2 to be the most difficult. Playing is not something that comes naturally for me. I often forget to carve out playtime for myself. Luckily, my loved ones remind me of the importance of playing. This habit is one that I struggle to incorporate in my life....
