092: "Best Self" Exercise

This is a short reflection activity that can help reveal your unique strengths.

I hope you'll give it a shot!

Step 1:
Think of 3-5 people who know you well.
Your friends, family, loved ones etc.

Step 2:
Send them each a short email, asking:

"When have you seen me being my best self?"

I bet you'll learn something useful.

Good luck!

Here's an email template.

Modify as you wish!

Dear [person],

I learned about a reflection exercise today. It involves e-mailing a couple people that know me well and asking them:

When have you seen me being my "best self"?

I'm hoping you can help me with any thoughts or examples that come to mind.


- [You]
