2. Choose the 7th one on the list.
3. Describe what you think this place would be like to visit. What would you do there?
Think about a mentor, a celebrity or a person who is successful in an area where you are trying to improve.
Imagine you are that person. Write a journal entry describing their day and how they are handling their biggest challenge.
