7 Habits Website Drafts

7 Habits Website Drafts

What a week this has been! I’m super far behind, but I also had my computer die on Saturday, right when I was starting to buckle down and get my work done for this class…. So I know I don’t have near enough done, but between trying to do research on my phone/super old Ipad (like, 1st or 2nd generation… It won’t even play youtube….), and doing design on my roommates computer after she goes to bed/before she wakes up (with permission of course!), it’s been a little crazy. But, here is what I’ve got:)

This week I mostly focused on how I was going to design my website. I meant to get it started so I could have a working mock-up, but right now I just have some wireframes still. I stayed mostly with the same theme as last week, with a couple changes. I did do some more research, trying to find some Qualitative statistics to turn into graphs. Turns out, it’s hard to put a stat on how much group work helps you succeed, or listening to the teacher and taking notes, etc. You get the picture. So unfortunately, I didn’t get a lot more of that done. I did read some more of the 7 Habits for Highly Effective Teens, and went through some of the activity guide, and I pondered what I wanted to do a lot. However, like usual, it seems my ideas won’t come until the last minute…. Hopefully I will be able to get more this next week!

As far as my wireframe goes, I started with adding in the other Habits (I think I only had 1-3 in last time), as well as a section just below the good focuses of the habit featuring the opposites. The book has a lot of examples, and illustrates a lot of different points on contrasting the good habits from the bad, so I wanted to do some of that. The information will be taken both from the book as well as other examples from research articles and survey results. I do have a survey almost ready to submit for approval to send out to a group of the student body to gather some primary data. So I’m pretty excited about that:)

After that, I started trying to add colors. I still don’t like the way these are working together yet. Mostly because I feel like red is a universal color representing bad, stop, or don’t follow. But it is also the color that will catch the attention between the two. So I haven’t quite solved that yet. Right now, the information in the red is about the habit we should be doing, and the blue is what we should avoid. But like I said, I’m still playing with it! The two graphs/charts I added are the comparisons table between good and bad habits, as well as the “jar” full of rocks next to the “Put First Things First” section. I am also playing around with the glasses for the “Paradigm” section. There will be text there as well, but I made these as I was being kicked out of the library to get to FHE tonight.

Well, that’s it for this week. Sorry I don’t have more to present, I will try and catch up next week! Any feedback would be awesome! Also, if you have any ideas on the types of data I should look at gathering, that would be helpful as well. The 7 habits I am trying to base the data on are:

  1. Be Proactive (Take control of your life)
  2. Begin With the End in Mind (Have goals and go for them!)
  3. Put First Things First (Prioritize carefully)
  4. Think Win-Win (Find ways for everyone to win)
  5. Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood (Take the time to listen)
  6. Synergize (Work together)
  7. Sharpen the Saw (take the time to keep learning)
