Passing on our legacy of success systems
Shelby, a daughter of one of DEFENDER's directors, watched her mom using the goal setting system that we teach at DEFENDER, writing her goals on sticky notes and placing them on her bathroom mirror. Shelby decided to write down her goals and put them on her bathroom mirror.
Then Shelby used another tool from the DEFENDER success system, Big
Rocks. Shelby wrote down the five most important things she needed to do
that day to help her accomplishment her goals. She placed that Big Rocks note on her school notebook each day. Her teachers started to notice a
difference in Shelby. She was more clear and deliberate in her efforts
and that supported greater confidence.
Her teacher asked her, "Shelby, what is this little note on your notebook each day?"
Intrigued by Shelby's explanation, the school called Shelby's mom and
asked if she would teach the rest of the class the DEFENDER Success
System. That teaching assignment ended up being the same class that all
new hires learn on their first day of work at DEFENDER. And it was
taught to the entire South Decatur Middle School.
