  2. 2. Beat My Match
  3. 3. Rules for Beat My Match • Game played with partner, four in a pod • All 52 cards are dealt out to entire pod • Each game has 14 rounds (one for each card in players’ hands) • Players will all put down one card at the same time • Once all cards are down in a round, each team will subtract the low card from the high card • The highest difference wins the round • Example: • Team 1 plays a 10 and a 4, they have 6 • Team 2 plays a 5 and a 2, they have 3 • Who wins?
  4. 4. Rules for Beat My Match • All Face Cards and Aces are equal to 10
  5. 5. The Catch • Teammates cannot communicate in any way • Teammates must put down a card of the same color to be eligible • Hearts and Diamonds together • Spades and Clubs together • Winning team takes all of the cards played in that round and wins a point for each

  16. 16. Reflect. •How did you act when the rules changed in your favor? What was the change from beginning to end? •What did you notice in your opponents’ behavior? How did they act/react from start to finish?
  17. 17. Discuss. • • • • • What is self-awareness? How does Covey define it? What is determinism? How do we tend to use it? Who is Victor Frankl? What was his predicament, and how did he respond? • Why is he proof that conditioning can be overcome?

  21. 21. Proactivity Experiment • Take 25 minutes to exercise their “R&I” and act proactively • You must do something—it can be personal, interpersonal, or campus-related • You must be back at the end of 25 minutes • You may partner up
  22. 22. Discuss Proactivity Experiment • Find a partner who did something very different with his/her experiment than you did with yours • Discuss the following: • • What were the benefits of your actions and who benefitted? Was your act of proactivity something that had longlasting effects?
  23. 23. Proactivity • Circle of Influence—the things you can control; ways of being (being happy, being resilient, being proactive) • Circle of Concern—the things outside of control, but still of importance because they impact us (parents financial problems, bad SAT score, school policies)
  24. 24. Circle of Concern External factors that affect us, but are outside of our control. Circle of Influence •Parents’ finances •Hard SAT Q’s •Weather •School policies Circle of Influence Internal reactions which we choose in response to the things that impact us. • • • • Attitude Outlook Language Personal actions
  25. 25. Stimulus  Freedom to Choose Self Awareness Owning and controlling feelings, behaviors, thoughts, and language Response Personal Will Taking action or initiative; acting rather than being acted upon Imagination Conscience Creating new solutions, thinking creatively, challenging preconceived notions, breaking the mold Choosing to do the right thing, regardless of the external pressures; matters of morality
