DAY 2 ACTIVITIES
- list the things that are important to you in how you evaluate or judge yourself as a person!
As this can be tricky, here is what i wrote about myself
Work, continuing education, physique, physical ability, martial ability, health, my relationship with kate, my clients , my next level curiosity, helping people/St john. Wealth. Solitude and performance. Teaching
If it helps you understand my answers, I don’t have stand alone friends: people who I’m friendly with are work colleagues, people who I meet when helping them or other researchers and clients. I hated my family. I love my own company, equally I like presenting and teaching. My relationship with kate is crucial
By comparison, A client I met a few years ago did this exercise: she simply wrote “ my weight”
