Back to the map. You must know yourself, who you actually are, in order to know your starting point. For a map to be useful that starting point is important information.

Thinking through these things with intention can bring to the surface new information and new self-understanding.
Knowing your wiring, beliefs, gifts, passions and values aren’t prescriptive – they don’t determine or restrict what you can or can’t do – and they’re not all completely unchanging. Yet looking at these things is helpful information and can help you more intentionally make decisions.
