    • Who's careers have you envied and thought - that is so cool? What's so cool about it?
    • Are there careers that you thought about when you were younger, but wrote them off as impractical or impossible? Is that true, when you take a deeper look?
  • Most people's backward approach to finding clarity

  • How to set up accountability structures so you follow through on your experiments
  • More journal prompts for AFTER your industry experiments:
    • How does your body feel? Would you want to feel that way over and over, multiple days a week?
    • What were the people you interacted with like? Would you want to spend most of your working hours around folks like that?
    • What info did you take away? Contacts? What it takes to get into the field? Other resources? What people in that field do or don't like about their job?
    • Note any synchroncities
    • What are you clear about now? What do you know now that you didn't know before? And how does that inform what you do next?
  • How each little tidbit of clarity adds up to a bigger, clear picture
