The easiest of the 7 1/2 Habits is "Accept responsibility for your own learning". I love to learn and find myself taking time to read self-help books, read online information, take staff development (When I can find them offered at times I'm not committed to after school activities, which tends to be July!), and I am presently taking graduate courses for library science.

Most challenging of the 7 1/2 Habits is "Play" which may seem strange to most people but when you think about my childhood where little time was spent on family activities and playing around it doesn't seem so strange. Although I am not good at playing games it doesn't mean I don't understand the need to do what makes one happy. If I don't satisfy my need and create happiness for myself then I don't have much to offer the students I teach or the family I love. Right now I create that happy spot by spending time with my husband of 34 years and our dogs Bonny and Ryder and teaching students I enjoy spending my time with.
