“You need time to relax and unstring your bow, time to treat yourself to a little tender loving care. This is what sharpening the saw is all about. Renew yourself regularly Sharpening the saw is about constantly renewing ourselves in the basic areas of life: Such as Physical, Social/Emotional, Mental, and Spiritual. It's the habit that increases our capacity to live all the other habits of effectiveness."(You are what you eat) in the words of Sean Covey the author of this book.

Here is a quote that Mother Teresa had said: “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expressing of God’s kindness: Kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” If you approach life this way, always looking for ways to build instead of tear down, You’ll be amazed at how much happiness you can give to others and find for yourself.

Here is my personal story and why a connect with caring from your heart section. Well I used to worry about my relationships a lot and not myself or anybody. When my old boyfriend would brake up with me I would brake down and just do nothing. People used to tell me that he was not worth it. That I should just move on and I never did, but now I am focused on myself and I do everything and I have an amazing boyfriend now that is there for me threw everything and I don't stress anymore. - Rose

A quote from Abraham Lincoln was said when he was asked, “What would you do if you had 8 hours to cut down a tree?”
Abraham replied, “I would spend the first 4 hours sharpening my saw.”

My one friend his brother was always healthy and fit, but when he went to college he let himself go got heavy. Then he started not caring about what he did, because he didn’t get to go to California for college and just went to a community college. After that his parents started to get angry, so they told him to get his act striate. Later on he got a job, went back to the gym and started to eat healthy again. Now he is back to normal and might go to California for his last two years of college. - Kyle
