You know that thing…
…that thing that happened to you years ago?
The one that had such a profound and positive impact on you that you said your life would never be the same again?
I want you to recall that event or experience now before you launch this week’s microlearning.

You may also want to have your personal development notebook with you so you can capture any insights or observations that may arise while doing the exercise.
