When you are married to a management consultant and coach, you get to take advantage of in-house resources. So there’s nothing strange about heading out of town with your 7 year old daughter to do a little life planning workshop. You’d be surprised how good a second-grader can be at doing visioning exercises around things that make you happy and things that you love and things that make you feel strong. She managed in 4 simple examples to capture all the ways most of us would want to feel strong in the world:
- making a really great drawing
- making crepes – she’s really good at this and can pretty much do it on her own
- doing a lot of something hard
- crossing the monkey bars without dropping
Yep, that about sums it up.
