- Habit 1 simply teaches teenagers to be proactive. This means they should take responsibility of their own life and live it to the best of their abilities without making choices that they will later regret. In other words, Habit 1 means only the person can live their life, so they should live their life to the best of their abilities.
- Habit 2 teaches teenagers to begin with an end in mind. This explanation is clear. Teenagers should know what they are doing before they start doing anything. If not, they will get lost and not know what they really want out of what they are doing.
- Habit 3 teaches teenagers to put the most important tasks first. This Habit tells teenagers they need to become "The Prioritizer" and learn how to fit everything they need to do into an organized schedule, one that fits their lifestyle.
- Getting into the relationship with others part of the book, Habit 4 teaches teenagers to think win-win. This means that everyone involved wins. No one feels like they did not get their way or feels inferior to the other. Teenagers are able to do this through first getting secure with themselves and then working to avoid competing and comparing, "The Tumor Twins".
After reading Habits 1-4, I am ready to see what the rest of the Habits, Habits 5-7, have in store for me.
