Now make a list on the board of good and bad habits, like doing homework versus not picking up after yourself. Habits are a lot like the thread. The more times we act with diligence, the stronger the habit is, the stronger the inclination to act with diligence when we are facing a challenge.
To process this activity, ask these questions:
- Did you expect to be able to break the thread with only one loop?
- Did you make a guess at how many loops of thread it would take until it wouldn’t break?
- Strengthening your diligence is like strengthening a muscle. Do you think that even little examples of diligence will strengthen your overall diligence?
