The 16 habits of mind
The habit of mind I am choosing is managing impulsivity
Once, I had gone out to recess in primary school and left my bottle in class. When I came back, my bottle was gone. I looked around but could not find it, so I begin to panic. At that moment, my friend came in with my bottle. I yelled at him and accused him of being a thief and stealing my bottle. This upset him and we had an argument. Luckily another classmate explained that my friend thought I forgot my bottle so he went out to find me.
If i could turn back time, I would have asked him why my bottle was with him instead of jumping to conclusions.
