THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “THE VISION:  Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place”

Keisha Glenn, Assistant Prosecuting Attorney – Wayne County, Michigan, says, “The Vision is crafted in such a way that it is the perfect tool for young children to learn about the value of education and for African-American children to briefly witness the struggles of their ancestors in obtaining an education. 

The worksheets in the book are a wonderful way to get children to recognize, think about, and discuss the opportunities available to them both educationally and socially.  Having the children create goals and sign contracts is a wonderful idea to stimulate enthusiasm and create a sense of accomplishment.

As a juvenile court prosecutor, I saw first-hand how many kids took for granted the opportunities they had to get an education.  I think every classroom and courtroom dealing with young children should make The Vision required reading.”

Stephen Covey’s “Four Quadrants”

Are you running around in a frenzy much of the time?  Make your life more peaceful by using Steven Covey’s “Four Quadrants.”  Q1:  Important and Urgent.  Q2:  Important, but Not Urgent.  Q3:  Not Important, but Urgent.  Q4:  Not Important, Not Urgent.  You should spend most of your time in Q2.

He introduced this concept many years ago, but I think it will always be relevant for enhancing control over one’s life!
