Mañana Habit - "Mamaya na lang"
The Mañana Habit is something that we have learned from the Spaniards. The word "Mañana" means ‘tomorrow’ or ‘specified future time’ also known as “procrastination” in plain English, “mamaya na” in Filipino.

How it Works:
1. You need to do something now.
2. But then you decide to do it later.
3. As a result of the delay, you end up not doing it.
4. Now, you tell yourself or somebody that you will do it tomorrow.
5. Tomorrow comes. The same cycle happens.

A habit is a pattern of behavior that is acquired through frequent repetition. No amount of planning or preparation can change this. The only way to change a habit is to replace it with another habit.

My father taught me these words when I was still young:

"Do it now"…"Don’t wait till tomorrow".

At that time, I didn’t see the value of that advice. It was too pushy or overbearing to hear. But then, later on I realized that it was a valuable habit that he was teaching me.

Three Important Words to Remember – Do. It. Now.

(1) Do.
Only action can beat procrastination. Drag your feet if you have to. Starting is the only challenging part. Jump start your way into it.

(2) It.
Face whatever needs to be done. Don’t do anything else. There’s always an excuse that you can say. But don’t give in.

(3) Now.
Not later or in the future. Don’t wait for the perfect time. Even if you don’t feel like doing it. You will appreciate what you did when you reap the benefits.

‘Just do it’ is a slogan phrase that was popularized by Nike in one of their marketing campaigns. Right now it has become number two in the Top 10 Slogans of the Century.

It’s a good slogan to remember and practice. Don’t think it. Don’t plan too long. Don’t make excuses. JUST DO IT!

Eating Habit

... the free-chili meals to prevent me from the unexpected allergic reactions of hot food. Also, I used to fear the fire of chili in my mouth, which caused me drink a lot of water to cool the burning down. However, when I grew up, my eating habits ultimately contrasted with my childhood’s eating habits. I now couldn’t enjoy any delicious dishes without chili. Chili became one of the most popular ingredients in my meals, such as adding chili in fish sauce, chili power in beef stew, dried chili in steamed fish. I even have a habit of eating raw hot-pepper with my special fried rice as an adult’s comestible style. Indeed, I totally changed our eating habits from child’s fear of chili to adult’s joy of spice by adding super-hot seasonings to my meals. Last of all, I’ve changed my eating habits from enjoying fresh meals in the childhood to eating frozen meals as an adult. When I was young, my family lived on a small farm, and I had no idea about frozen meals. On our farm, my dad raised the chickens for eggs, pigs for meat, fed Saba fishes, and planted vegetables. I not only had the self-made fresh supply, but also daily bought crisp groceries from the village market. I’ll never forget the gorgeous taste of animated fishes with self-produced veggies from my field. However, when I moved to America, my eating habits dramatically changed due to my new living conditions. My parents and I work as assemblers for Cisco Company which costs us at least ten working hours a day. My mom and I...

Study Habit

...When you are learning English as a second language, it is important to learn through the use of good habits. Any student, whether learning to drive or learning a new language, will need to make sure they are learning good habits and not bad ones. Once Bad habits are formed, they are extremely difficult to break, and it will make learning that little bit harder. If you are learning English as a second language through self-teaching methods rather than going to a class, it is important to find the right resources to help you. For example, just reading a translation book will not help you with your pronunciation. You might think that your pronunciation of certain words and phrases is correct, but once you are faced with a native speaker, you may find that you were wrong. Good pronunciation is a good habit you will want to make sure you keep. Why You Should Work On Pronunciation Pronunciation is extremely important when learning English as a second language. It is the pronunciation that allows you to communicate easily with others. More importantly, it allows others to understand you. It is vital that you listen to English speakers, whether that is an English speaking CD to go with a book, or in a classroom. There are lots of English words that are confusing unless you know how to pronounce them. Often, in English, there are words that sound similar, but are not spelt the same way. Also, there are many words that when you look at them, offer you no clues as to...

Reading Habit in Children

... judge the quality of their research report by analyzing the content, voice, and writing conventions; they can 66 evaluate their progress over time by comparing similar work samples produced at the beginning, middle, and end of the school year; they can even engage in self-assessment as part of a more formal assessment such as a theme test. Relying on classroom artifacts is helpful because students can literally see and take time to carefully study their work. In the process, students are encouraged to think about what went into that work and what strategies seemed most useful or problematic. Having the actual artifact also makes it easier to think about work that was completed in the past. A second strategy for engaging students in self-assessment is to make self-assessment a natural part of classroom conversation. All too often, self-assessment takes the form of written reflections rather than discussion. Although written reflections are useful and can encourage a bit more reflection time, discussions help students become part of a reflective community whose members are willing and able to talk about their strengths and needs. This is an important “habit of mind” (Meier, 1995) for any learner. For example, after reading a story, students can discuss what parts they found personally engaging and what sections were particularly difficult or confusing for them. They can also help one another develop strategies for clarifying anything that confused them. Other times, it......

... percent possibility of creating their own ideal habits. So, it has become a major trouble to college students who are known to be suffocated with loads of works from school.   To elaborate more about sound study habits, Rothkopf (1982) referred to it as to whether students study at the same time each day, whether they shut off radio, television while reading and whether they paraphrase and write down what they have read during the practical instructions. Study habit also describes some external activities which serve to activate and facilitate the internal process of learning. Study habit is the daily routine of students with regards to their academic duties and responsibilities. Each student has his own study habits varying on his preferences with the place and time of studying, techniques in studying and more Reading is an attempt to absorb the thought of the author and know what the author is conveying (Leedy 1956).

Good Habit, Bad Habit

...Taylor Daily U0677774 11/04/14 Article #3 “Good Habits, Bad Habits” The article I choose to read researched the neurological effects of habits on our brain and if it was possible to change our habits. We all struggle with habits that make us less productive or less efficient but that said we also have many habits (actions we don’t think about) that help us get through a day without wasting time with extra thinking. It is interesting from the article that our brain can make habits but cannot seem to forget them. They are stored even when not being used for a later date and time when needed. Our brains are working and thinking even if we aren’t aware of it. In the Infralimbic cortex of our brain, habits are stored and the actions that go along with them. That part of our brain is active when we go pour a bowl of cereal, or make a cup of coffee in the morning. It is the same routine and our brain isn’t wasting time or energy thinking about things we do everyday, these routines are habits. From an evolutionary standpoint it makes sense that our brains would create habits to help us only focus on the most important parts of the day, and let us focus of figuring out how to stay alive. It comes in handy in a tight situation to not have to think when a quick decision is demanded. Brains in humans and animals have habits that are stored for our safety and helping us get by day to day. A good example of a habit most people learn is driving a car. There is a lot of thinking...

Reading Habit

...The Reading Habit 9 by Frankie Y. Bailey   We humans are creatures of habit. Change, real change, does not come easily for most of us. We prefer to get into our comfortable groove and stay there. Change often requires an epiphany, a life-altering insight, that most of us rarely, if ever, experience. Perhaps this is why the more cynical among us would doubt that simply picking up a book could change a life.   Like many avid readers, I have had the experience of falling in love with a book. But, I confess here, I have not been faithful to my loves. After the first delight of discovery, I have strayed in search of other books that would engage, challenge, tantalize, take my breath away and leave me wanting more. My affairs with books have been passionate and many. And I am the better for my unfaithfulness to a singe book or any one author.   This is why when I am asked to name my favorite book I find myself embarrassed by my inability to name the one book that I would take with me to a desert island or even the five books or ten. I know that my favorite writer (now deceased) was a man named Richard Martin Stern. Mr. Stern was my favorite author because when I wrote to him as a teenager to tell him how much I loved his mystery series (featuring an African American, or actually biracial, female anthropologist), he wrote back to thank me for my letter. By doing so, he helped to set me on my own path toward becoming a writer. But this does not mean Mr. Stern’s Johnny Ortiz...

Habit 4

...Jacob Lewtan Professor Ciliberto 03-05-15 Changing My Center After being assigned habit two in the book “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey, I noticed it was the longest of the habits with fifty pages of reading. As I started reading, I realized that it was much more than just the longest habit, but it was my favorite. It was the habit that I could most apply to my life in the form of making a mission statement and finding my center. Habit two being about, “Beginning with the End in Mind,” made me start to think about what I want for myself in not only my education at Bryant University, but for the rest of my life. Covey starts with a very vivid simulation. This simulation shows the reader “driving to the funeral” (Covey, 96) of themselves and seeing what people are saying and thinking about them after they have passed. It made me start to think, what would I want people to say about me? I know that I would want everyone to view me as hard working and justified for my actions. Although I may always be edgy with what I say or do, I would want to make sure that everyone knows why I put myself in that position and how important it is that I say what I say. Covey talks about starting with a clear understanding of my destination. I have always had a sense for where I am going, but after reading this chapter and being at Bryant for a full semester I am not completely sure anymore. On my school profile, it reads, “some kids wanted to be a sports star...

... into the responsible factors looks to be highly unscientific. There may be a number of reasons like different levels of intelligence, non-availability of sufficient physical facilities etc. But one of the reasons is that the students fail to make good efforts to learn the lesson taught in the class room. The study habits of the students could play pivotal role in learning process reflected in the academic achievements of the students. Rasul (1968) and Shafiq (1978) concluded that the habits have positive relationship with the learning, which result in better achievements. The students may fail to maintain higher level of achievements due to a particular study habit. It is, therefore, desirable that the students should be motivated toward such habits of study by which they may score good grades with better understanding of the subject matter. According to Kundu and Tutoo (1993) it has also been found that recitation method of study is better for immediate retention. Morgan (1956) stated that almost every college student feels at one time or another that he should improve his study habits. So, it is the responsibility of teachers concerned to play their role by inflicting effective study habits among the students because left to self-training cannot be taken granted in any way. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study, aimed at the determination of the effect of the study habits on the achievements of students, was undertaken in the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad. All the...

8th Habit

...The 8th Habit By Stephen Covey A Summary The Whole-Person paradigm says that people are whole people - body, mind, heart and spirit - and they have four related capacities: (1) Physical Intelligence, (2) Mental Intelligence, (3) Emotional Intelligence, and (4) Spiritual Intelligence. People also have four related needs: (1) To Live - Survival, (2) To Love - Relationships, (3) To Learn - Growth and Development, and (4) To Leave a Legacy - Meaning and Contribution. People have choices - in fact, there are six choices that we have in any situation (1) rebel or quit, (2) malicious obedience, (3) willing compliance, (4) cheerful cooperation, (5) heartfelt commitment and (6) creative excitement. People want to be paid fairly, used creatively, treated kindly and given an opportunity to serve human needs in principled ways. So, whole people (body, mind, heart and spirit) with four basic needs (1) to live, (2) to learn, (3) to love, and (4) to leave a legacy) and four intelligences or capacities (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) and their highest manifestations (discipline, vision, passion and conscience) all of which represent the four dimensions of voice (need, talent, passion and conscience). Our voice lies at the intersection of talent (your natural gifts and strengths), passion (things that naturally energise, excite, motivate and inspire you), need (including what he world needs enough to pay you for), and conscience (that still voice within that...
