They may relate to family, work, school or leisure activities. List ten pleasurable experiences and/or achievements. An achievement is something you feel you have done well. (Use action verbs: designed..., persuaded..., organized..., published..., etc.); Circle five of your most favorite experiences.

Answer the following questions about each.

What were you doing?

What talents/skills did you use?

What challenges and/or obstacles did you overcome?
