Sweets Column, Winslow, IN 47598 received no post- cards this week. Winslow Patoka River is still low and has tree and limb debris. The only rain we got was Sunday, June 14, but not too much in the morning. The temps have been in the 80s to low 90s, but no humidity. The win- dows have been open and the fans have been on. One or two nights, it was cool in the low 50s, but it felt good. The mowers are getting a workout when you have to mow the lawn twice a week. Like Lowell has said, you can see it grow as you mow. My house plants love the shade tree, but when the wind was strong, the vines that were draped around the basket are now hanging to the ground. So, I need to stake them up before they take root. The ferns are lov- ing the rain. The daylilies, snowball and rhododendron look great in bloom. The or- ange lilies you can see dot- ting the Indiana and Illinois roadways. My patriotic red lilies bloomed on flag day this year and the pink lily bloomed on Monday, June 15. Some of the rose bush- es are in bloom, but when I see other yards, they are all in colors of red. The birds are happy as they sing their songs from morning to night. The squirrels must be hiding out because I haven't heard or seen them play. I haven't seen our chipmunks either. When we made a trip to take Mom home, a chip- munk came along for a ride. We believe he is now at George's house, checking out his new surroundings. Speaking of Mom, she has been here for two weeks and got to see Aunt Jean before she left. They had a great visit. There were other rel- atives to see, but when you cannot get yourself awake, you have to make plans lat- er on. She plans to be back in a couple of weeks or so. Saturday, June 13, we loaded Mom's belongings in the truck and with Mom, Laura, Norm and I, we were DILL GARDEN SALAD MEALS IN Monica's MINUTES Share your favorite recipe!

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, which has sold over 30 million copies in over 40 languages, is one of the most significant business books of all time. Dr. Stephen Covey's lifelong mission was to "unleash the human po- tential." The Seven Habits are the ac- cumulated wisdom he blended into a comprehensive framework that allows one to be effective in their work and personal life. The Seven Habits have the ability to introduce skills like goal setting, or- ganization, time management, team work, conflict management, collabo- ration and communication. Those al- ready familiar with the habits can al- so strengthen these skills. There are steps to create habits that help you personally, and there are oth- er steps that help you deal with and un- derstand others. Ultimately the hope is that the participant will experience renewal – knowing that to be your best you need to feel your best mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The Seven Habits were developed to help people deal with issues that can hamper their productivity, creativity and personal health. But can they al- so apply to dealing with the coronavi- rus? Let's examine the second habit – Begin with the end in mind. Beginning with the end in mind re- minds us that we should always have goals, whether they are personal or professional, short-term or long-term. Goals are what guide us to the outcome we want. Asking ourselves specific questions about what we want, expect, and hope for will help set our goals. A person- al goal of making new friends, losing weight, eating healthier, or adding a spiritual aspect to our days can be achieved by looking ahead and think- ing of the steps it will take to get there. The same goes for professional goals. Where do I want to be in six months or one year? Does the job I'm looking for require me to get more ed- ucation? Should I enroll in classes or training? Will I need to work on cer- tain skills? Covey recommends developing a personal mission statement. This can be a quote, song lyrics or a sim- ple statement describing who you are right now. It can help define what's im- portant to you and get started on the steps toward a goal you envision. Right now we find ourselves adjust- ing to schedules and situations unlike anything we've ever dealt with. This can be stressful and can cause us to forget this situation will eventually end and normalcy will return. Beginning with the end in mind helps us think about life down the road. What happens when the pandemic is over? Was I kind to my neighbors? Did I have patience with the people I live with? Will our behavior now affect our relationships later? What is the goal for when this situation ends? Personally and professionally, where do I want to be? During this uncertain time, it's helpful to have goals to guide us.
