In what ways have I used insight to improve my level of happiness? Do I think insight is valuable in life? Do I think insight is limited in any way? If so, in what way?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with insight at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. Next to each word you listed attribute a life experience that correlates to that word for you and the insight you gained through that life experience.
