Day 30: Looking Forward & A Short Survey
Jon wraps-up the 30 day program with final reflections, including a “look back” at what you have learned, and a “look forward” at how you want to live your life given your new awareness. Please also complete a short Final Survey, which will help us improve the program for those that follow you.
Jon discusses topics including:
- Congratulations on persisting through to Day 30!
- Taking a look back at what you’ve learned and what’s worked for you
- Taking a look forward at how you want to live your life given your new awareness
- Taking 5 minutes to complete the Final Survey
Negative Writing (on a piece of paper you will rip up and throw away afterwards): Take 5 minutes to write down all of the negative thoughts causing you anxiety right now, and when you are done, rip up the piece of paper.
Questions for Journaling:
Part 1: Looking back
- What have you learned about yourself?
- What new practices have you adopted?
- What are your biggest ah-has?
Part 2: What “New Back Story” are you going to tell friends, family and colleagues given your new awareness? (You might want to refer to your “Old Back Story” from Day 1)
