Be Proactive is Steven Covey’s 1st Habit for Highly Effective People
Steven Covey’s book, The 7 Habits for Highly Effective People, is one of my favorites. It prompted several of my article on this blog. And it prompted me to write an article directed at students, which I published on Suite 101. It is entitled Be Proactive – A Habit of Highly Successful College Students.
You have read my article about college teachers being proactive, right. No? Shame on you! It is entitled The 7 Habits of Highly Effective College Adjuncts. Yes, it applies to all college faculty members, but as you read the article you will understand the unique importance being proactive plays for adjuncts.
My recommendation to college instructors is to make your students aware of what it means to be proactive. Clarify your expectations in that regard. Maybe even refer them to my article.
