Overview

A hands-on companion workbook to Sean Covey’s New York Times bestseller The 6 Most Important Decisions You’ll Ever Make, showing you how to apply the lessons and insights from that book into real-world situations and put them into practice in your own life.

In The 6 Most Important Decisions You’ll Ever Make, Sean showed teenagers how to make wise decisions about the biggest issues in their lives. He identified six major topics that all teens have to face on a regular basis—school, friends, parents, dating & sex, addiction, and self-worth. Teens are under incredible pressure to make good and responsible choices, but it can be difficult to decide what those choices are. At school, at home, and everywhere in between, decisions about these matters shape who a teenager is—and who he or she will become.

In this companion workbook, readers will get the chance to get down and dirty with the principles in The 6 Most Important Decisions You’ll Ever Make. Filled with activities, conversation starters, and thought-provoking exercises, this workbook will get teens thinking about how their decision making affects their lifestyles, their priorities, and their futures. Covey gives readers the opportunity to practice applying those lessons in real-world contexts so that they can be better prepared for the challenging moments that lie ahead
