7 Habit Rap

Below is my rap that I performed for the students during our leadership assembly.  Sung to Paul Revere by the Beastie Boys.

Now here’s a little story I got to tell
About 7 cool habits you’ll learn so well
They started way back with Dr. Stephen Covey
And now we’re bring’em to this elementary

The 1st three habits start with you
So here is all the stuff you’ll want to do

Habit #1 is about being proactive and being in charge
You’ll do the right thing and you’ll be livin’ large
Habit #2 is to have the end in mind
Always have a plan and won’t get yourself in a bind
Habit #3 is putting first things first
Only start to play when your work’s done first

The next 3 habits are about working well with others
Remember to think of everyone as your sisters and brothers

Habit #4 is always thinking win-win
Find a solution for everyone and make it the best it’s ever been
Habit #5 is seeking to understand then being understood
If you can remember to do that then it will be all good
Habit #6 is the habit of working together
Synergizing with others will help you forever

The final habit is remembering that balance feels best
Remember to sharpen your saw and it’ll take care of the rest
Take time each day to make the 7 habits who you are
Don’t forget being a leader will take you really far

  1. Where is the video of this? I'd like to see it performed. A Jason Berg original.
