Explore your character, values, strengths and weaknesses with popular personality tests 16 Personalities, Enneagram, Disc, VIA.

Document your self-discovery journey with a paper note-book and one of the note-taking apps Evernote, Keep or Workflowy. Google Drive is also useful for storing documents!

Take a bunch of sticky notes and make a list of what you’re curious about. One interest per sticky note.

Stick all of your interests on the wall. Voila! Now, look for ideas for passion projects.

How to learn to learn

When you work on your project, pause. List skills and knowledge that would help move your project forward.

Find a course that teaches you missing skills on Coursera, EdX, Udemy, Udacity, Skillshare, Lynda, Khan Academy.

When taking an online course, use a Pomodoro technique and pause every 25 minutes. Reflect on your learning with a note-taking app and a paper diary.

Habits

Change Your Habits

How to re-write your brain

We are what we repeatedly do. Good news are – we can change our habits.

The first step for changing your habit is to notice a behaviour that keeps repeating.

The next step is to start doing something else instead. Every time you do it, log it on your mobile with one of the habit tracking apps.
