Try this exercise.

Each step has an exercise that you can complete on your own time that will introduce you to the process of thinking through a challenge, opportunity, or curiosity you are facing and may feel stuck. These will pose questions about yourself and prompt you to think about possible actions. These will be a starting point in your journey of each step to help guide you as you navigate resources, meet with career coaches, and design your life!
