Day 21 – Famous last words…

Some final thoughts for Gen Yers!

Having trouble figuring out what you really want out of life? And even more important sometimes, what you don’t want?

  • Here’s an exercise for you: Want-Don’t Want Exercise
  • This will only take you 15 minutes to complete!
  • Spend 5 minutes writing “What I want…”
  • Spend 5 minutes writing “What I don’t want…”
  • Spend 5 minutes writing “What I want…” again
  • Write whatever comes to mind. Do not hold back! If you want to discuss your list with someone after feel free to Contact Me or another Life Coach/Therapist

Not sure what career you’re interested in?

  • Ask a friend (or family member but remember, family perspectives tend to be more biased) what they can picture you doing for a career
  • Make a list of everything you are interested in
  • Make a list of the skills you have developed throughout your life
  • Write down your dominant personality traits. Check out these posts on personality to find out if you’re an introvert or an extrovert etc. E or I?Additional Info.E/I Follow Up.

Thinking about taking some major steps in your life but having trouble actually moving forward?

  • Jenny Blake’s website is called Life After College and it is an awesome resource!!! I highly encourage you to check it out. She has a bunch of templates which will allow you to do some life coaching on yourself. She also has a fabulous blog on all kinds of relevant topics (work, relationships etc.) and has even published a book geared specifically  for 20-somethings! Take a look and enjoy her site!

Each of the above authors also have great websites I would highly encourage you to check out, in addition to Stratejoy which I have referenced before.

    I really appreciated the like/don’t like exercise. I think it helps to clarify and redefine what it is I do want by weeding out what I know I don’t.

    • Sometimes knowing you don’t want can be incredibly helpful in knowing what you do, I agree! In fact my early working years were all about that!
