“Being truly human and liking it requires self-knowledge. It gives our experience resonance. It lends a vibe, an echo, a wholeness to what we think and feel. Self-knowledge is fun. It leads to wonderment, personal investigation, and new discoveries. It opens up the cracks and lets loose bits and pieces of ourselves we haven’t met…yet.”
Ilene Segalove and Paul Bob Velick
List Yourself: Listmaking as the Way to Self-Discovery
In 2002, the book by Segalove and Velick started me on a journey to knowing myself better. I learned firsthand the power of listmaking as a form of self-discovery. And it really is fun. That’s why I’ve created My Top 10 Lists as this month’s Your Aha! Life Journey Accelerator.
In My Top 10 Lists, you complete lists on such things as:
- People you’ve met or want to meet
- Books you’ve read or want to read
- Travel destinations you have experienced or want to experience
- And more
There are seven pre-written list prompts and one you get to create yourself. Have fun discovering things about yourself that may have never come out in “ordinary” ways.
MY TOP 10 LISTS
The My Top 10 Lists Accelerator is a fun way to increase your self-knowledge.
- Complete each list and reflect on your answers.
- Select one answer from the list and explain why you chose it.
- From your answers, what do you learn about yourself?
If you have any questions about this Accelerator or would like to share an insight you gained while completing it, I’d love to hear from you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
