    Day 2


    • What activities give me energy? – walking, cold shower, playing, VR games, driving

    • What would I only do for a lot of money? – money don’t motivate me


    • What do I want to be remembered for? – teaching people to stand on their own two feet (mostly because experience has taught me I learn best when teaching, rather than because I aced it :D)
