Favourite things exercice …

On your way to understand how to put your strength at work, I suggest you to go and read Rachel from the Touch Wood project.

The exercice below could really help you to clarify what you are really good at, love to do, have already somewhat developed.

Here’s how it works:

  1. For one week, whenever you realise you’re really enjoying yourself, write down a few sentences to describe it.
    Capture what you’re doing right then and there, not later or at the end of the day — right then. By the end of the week you should have several scraps or paper or sentences in your notebook.
  2. Pick the top 3 activities that you most enjoyed, where you felt you were something that comes to you naturally and easily, and then
  3. Convert those activities into a statement of your Favourite Things to Do.
