7 Habits and Love Gama 2023-24

We had a productive and engaging time during your life classes after a long break. The focus on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is evident in your description of the activities. Here’s a breakdown of the key points from your experience:

Habit 4: Think Win-Win: You engaged in discussions and exercises to understand how to turn various situations into win-win scenarios. This habit emphasizes the importance of seeking mutually beneficial solutions in interpersonal interactions.

Habit 5: Listening and Non-Verbal Communication: We learnt about the power of listening, both with and without words. Effective communication often involves active listening, which can help others calm down and feel heard.

Synergy at KG Farm: Our class participated in games at KG Farm with a focus on synergy. The initial focus may have been on winning individually, but as you progressed, you began to understand the value of working together and the power of synergy.

Games at KG Farm: These games included intense and challenging activities that tested your teamwork, coordination, and patience. Despite some setbacks, the overall experience helped your team build synergy and coordination.

Tug of War: The final game, tug of war, demonstrated the importance of synergy in achieving success. our team won most of the rounds, highlighting the effectiveness of working together.

Final Habit: Sharpen the Saw: We discussed the importance of self-care and personal growth, represented by Covey’s seventh habit. This habit emphasises maintaining and improving one’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Movie Demonstration: We watched a movie that illustrated several of Covey’s habits, including sharpening the saw, beginning with the end in mind, synergistic, and seeking first to understand before being understood. This movie likely served as a practical application of the concepts we learnt.

Overall, it appears that our life classes provided valuable insights into personal development, effective communication, teamwork, and the principles of the 7 Habits. These lessons can be applied to various aspects of our life, including relationships, work, and personal growth.

Enhancing Critical Thinking skills

The 3rd & 4th Life classes were very informative and had a lot of new topics which I discovered of.

I find group activities during life class sessions more enjoyable, but I also appreciate our facilitators who always tells us to keep our own perspectives first and then mutually come to a common decision. When involved in group activities there are a lot of new points which gives me a new perspective that I would have never thought of, due to which my brain engages in a bit more exercise to explore alternative and creative perspectives.

My takeaways from these recent life classes is that I learnt some disciples about human being where the points I liked were:

  1. Human is a sophisticated mechanism on the planet.
  2. All desires evolve with time and age.
  3. What we accumulate from our surroundings is ours and not of others.
  4. Faith is a blind power which paralyzes our brain.
  5. When you fully accept your lack of knowledge for anything, that’s when you’ll truly begin to inquire and seek understanding.
  6. Everything which comes to our mind is from our 5 senses.
  7. There is a very vast difference in the words “belief” & “faith”

A very nice activity which had different types of biases and its meaning where we could ourselves identify where and how we apply those biases and how we can overcome certain biases with something positive.

The movie “The Man from Earth” which was shown to us was quite interesting and it portrayed how different people react differently on the same situation, which makes us think that how we are grown and what all intakes we accumulate while growing is how we react at any situation.

At the end CT is helpful in life but it doesn’t come in just few days, it takes time and positive initiatives by our own self to come to that level of thinking.

7 habits and love Gamma – Day 3 & 4

An aspect that resonated deeply with me during this phase was the exploration of listening through interactive games and role-playing. The classroom ambiance was a pivotal catalyst for our immersion into the habits under study. Days 3 and 4 of our life class unfolded as an extraordinary experience, overflowing with dynamic activities and profound wisdom.

Through thought-provoking activities and team challenges, we internalized these principles. One of the highlights of our learning journey was watching the movie “Master Geeta Rani.” These two days buzzed with the energy of eager minds and hearts open to growth. Thank you to our Facilitator their guidance and dedication made these two days of learning not only informative but also incredibly enjoyable. The classroom ambiance was a pivotal catalyst for our immersion into the habits under study. We dived into four fundamental habits during this period: “understand before being understood,” “cultivate win-win solutions,” “harmonize through synergy,” and “nurture self-renewal.”

Gratitude extends to our dedicated facilitator whose guidance made these two days an enlightening and enjoyable voyage into self-improvement.

7 Habits & Love – Gamma – Day 3 & 4

Day 3 & 4 of life classes were having lots of fun, enjoyment and laughter. In these 2 days I learnt a lot about remaining 4 habits – “Think win-win, seek first to understand and then to be understood,  synergize and sharpen the saw.

On Day 3 I earnt 2 habits with different activities also we played a game on listening or different types of listening also we played a role model of different types of listening.

Day 4 we started with games on KG farm. All the games which we have played was totally on the concept of all these 7 habits. The moto behind these games were to understand how we can apply all these habit in our life can make our life easy.

After that the activity was to invent any new thing in life and then group yoga we have done with the habit synergize. We saw a movie “Master Geeta Rani” was the best example of all the habits.

Over all these 2 days were really engaged with activities, games, learning and fun.

7 Habits & Love Day 3-4 (Gamma)

Day 3 and 4 of our life class were nothing short of remarkable. These two days were packed with activities, learning opportunities, and an abundance of joy and laughter. The class environment itself was a crucial contributor to our overall experience, making it easy for everyone to grasp the habits we were being taught.

One aspect that I particularly cherished during these days was the concept of playing listening games and role-playing different aspects of listening, such as ignoring and selective listening. This hands-on approach made understanding these habits not only enjoyable but also incredibly effective.

The four habits we delved into during these two days were “seek first to understand and then to be understood,” “think win-win,” “synergize,” and “sharpen the saw.” Through various engaging games, we gained profound insights into these habits. Synergy and teamwork became more than just words; they became concepts we could grasp and apply in our daily lives. The idea of “think win-win” resonated deeply with me, reminding me of the importance of collaboration and mutual benefit.

One of the highlights of our learning journey was watching the movie “Master Geeta Rani.” This film beautifully illustrated the integration of the seven habits into real-life situations. It served as a powerful reminder that these habits are not just theoretical concepts but practical tools that can enhance our relationships, communication, and overall effectiveness.

Thank you to our Facilitator their guidance and dedication made these two days of learning not only informative but also incredibly enjoyable. I found myself both enlightened and excited about what lies ahead in our life class

7 habits & Love – Beta

Day 1 & 2

The life classes as expected were extremely heartwarming..The ambience created by the facilitators, the content shared by them, the trust amongst the team members which led to such sharing and pouring out of their life experience, all these have left me enriched with memories. They’ve given an insight about how everyone is dealing with their problems and moving ahead. It reinforced the concept “this too shall pass”….a concept we’re all aware of, but need to be reminded of in times of difficulty. 

The session leaves me light hearted and with a new perspective. Will definitely try being more proactive and focus more on the rocks (important things) and pebbles and leave worrying about the sand.

I would like to sincerely thank FS and our facilitators JB and SS for giving us the opportunity to be a part of this. Looking forward to implementing all that I have learned in personal as well as professional life. 

Awaiting the next session.

Day 3 & 4 were fun. Reconnecting with old team mates felt good. A lot many things discussed in the life class, is what we know but the way its reiterated is probably what makes the impact. Going back with the hope that I’ll implement what i learned and that I am a better listener and team player when we meet next. And yes, thoroughly enjoyed the games. Heartfelt gratitude to the facilitators.

Critical Thinking.

Critical Thinking is a very crucial part of our life. We need to apply critical thinking in decision making process. We learned about different biases like confirmation biases , group biases, declined biases. Thing is that these biases we observe in day to day life but concept about biases we learned in critical thinking class. we also learned to see one thing by different perspective, different angle that works in our life. overall critical thinking session is amazing life class which actually teach what should we take care when we make any decision. facilitator was amazing because their explanation is amazed.
