BE A LEADER:)

Dear Parents,

 

March is our month to promote Habit 7 Sharpen the Saw. The Leader in Me Team would like to share with you our monthly habit. Below is a story by Stephen Covey reminding us all why Sharpening the Saw is so important.

 

A Story by Stephen Covey

Stephen Covey tells the story of a man who was walking through a forest when he came across a frustrated lumberjack.

The lumberjack was trying to cut down a tree with and was swearing and cursing as he labored in vain.

“What’s the problem?” The man asked.

“My saw’s blunt and won’t cut the tree properly.” The lumberjack responded.

“Why don’t you just sharpen it?”

“Because then I would have to stop sawing.” Said the lumberjack.

“But if you sharpened your saw, you could cut more efficiently and effectively than before.”

“But I don’t have time to stop!” The lumberjack retorted, getting more frustrated.

The man shook his head and kept on walking, leaving the lumberjack to his pointless frustration.

Make sure you SHARPEN YOUR SAWS!:)
