Exercises for Self-Understanding
Your past experiences are the stepping stones to who you are today. Focus on things you feel you have done well or enjoyed, a challenge you have mastered, or a contribution you are proud of. 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?
What did you enjoy the most about this experience?"
