20/20 Sight Line: Give Yourself Five
So if the “cure” for curiosity is to look outside yourself, let’s see how well you’re doing. Please write – and it’s important to write these not just think about them – your response to the following.
- Name five things you did for the first time over the last year.
- Name five people, who you now consider friends, that you met for the first time over the last year.
Were you able to identify any activities or friendships that were initiated over the last year? Many people score a big goose egg on this exercise so don’t fret if you’re in that category. You’ve got another year ahead of you to make amends and expand your horizons, but it won’t happen without a written plan and specific goals. To wit:
- Name five things you will do for the first time over the next year.
- Name five opportunities to meet new people that you’ll take advantage of over the next year.
