Your Personal Bank Account

In "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens", bestselling book by Sean Covey, he writes about the personal bank account. This section of his book has a very personal place in my heart, because he talks about the steps to take to get your life in order with a list that he calls the PBA list. In this list, you deposit or withdraw good habits. Some deposits, keeping promises to yourself, doing small acts of kindness, and being honest, are metioned on the right side of the PBA list. Sean also mentions some withdraws in your PBA list on the bad side such as wearing yourself out and neglecting your talents.
This list is personal to me because I tend to stray to the bad side of his list. I have a tendency to wear myself out with all the activities, clubs and classes that I can cram into the 24 hours of each day. With Sean Covey's help, I have been fighting back to the right side of his PBA list. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is feeling stressed out and/or depressed. His book has helped me to realize what a mess my priorities were and how I can get my life, adittude and self-perseption in the right order. Please, read this book. It will change your life.
