Last night I was with a group of friends and we were studying some very interesting material. As part of the discussion, we did a really fun and enlightening exercise (thank you, Megan).
Each of us wrote down a goal along with three actions we were going to take. Knowing that we would share the goal and actions with the group, we each chose what to write down accordingly.
Then, we put our goal sheet face down in a pile. After they were shuffled, we chose one (not our own) and then read it to the group. Once we were done, we were told to keep the other person’s goal sheet and think about the individual accomplishing the goal and how we might help that person.
Very cool, encouraging, and practical. Try it.
