One of the most valuable exercises in The Style Statement process is the free-write you use to discover what they call your foundation word. And I encourage you to go through a similar process which I've outlined below:
free-write the things you love
(as inspired by Style Statement: Live By Your Own Design)
- Set your stopwatch (or smart phone, or iPad) for five minutes.
- Using only words and short phrases begin writing down everything you love.
- After five minutes, circle and highlight words that have the most resonance.
Still confused? Take a look at a subset of my original list on the Things I Love tab.
So what's the goal? The goal is to think about what drives you to do the things you do. Or, even more simply, the goal is to create a list of what gets you out of bed in the morning. Because once you know that, you can create a lifestyle that feeds those motivations, interests, and dreams.
