How to LIve Effectively - LIEP Students' Thoughts

The Advanced Reading class of the Loyola Intensive English Program (LIEP) has begun our Spring 2014 semester with THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE by Stephen R. Covey. In preparation for reading this book, the class considered their own thoughts about habits that lead to personal effectiveness. Here are their ideas.

Alaa Mufti of Saudi Arabia
Do things efficiently.
Know your limits.

Dalal Alokla of Saudi Arabia
Exchange information with others.
Give each part of your life a reasonable time.
Understand priorities and minorities.
Develop the courage to experience new things.

Xiaomei Sun of China
Accept advice from others.
Travel widely.

Leena Salama of Saudi Arabia
Participate in social events.
Read widely.
Be optimistic.

Murtadha Almohammed of Saudi Arabia
Balance your concern between your own life and others.
Your actions reflect your thoughts. Work on your thoughts first.
A big thank-you to the LIEP students of the Advanced Reading class for these excellent thoughts on living an effective life!
