LEADER IN ME – LESSONS
HABIT #2 – BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND
What It Means…
To Begin With the End in Mind means to start every task with clearly defined outcomes. It also means to determine our own life’s purpose. It ensures that we are setting goals to be accomplished.
I can’t predict how my life will turn out, so I just go with the flow.
Highly Effective Verbiage
Clearly defining my vision and purpose in life will make all the difference.
Vision, commitment, and purpose.
In the Leader In Me Program students create goals they want to achieve. When working with your mentee ask them about the goals they have set. Ask them what it might look or feel like if they meet their goal. Talk about what needs to happen to accomplish the goal. Ask them if they have written down the steps they need to take to achieve the goal. This is an example of Beginning With the End In Mind and leads to the next Habit – Put First Things First.
