"7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens" Mural by Michele Levani

"The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens"
Mural by Michele Levani

Last week I was asked to paint a mural in a young boy's bedroom based on the best selling book, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens".
I haven't read the book yet, but I am planning to do so along with Sean Covey's other best selling book, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People". 
The 7 Habits are-

Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
Listen to people sincerely.
Be Proactive
Take responsibility for your life.
Begin with the End in Mind
Define your mission and goals in life.
Put First Things First
Prioritize and do the most important things first.
Think Win-Win
Have an "everyone-can-win" attitude.
Work together to achieve more.

Sharpen the Saw
Renew yourself regularly.
This mural took me about 5 hours total of painting and preparation time.

My client was so happy with the results that she has hired me to paint 2 additional murals in her home, so ...more to come!
