For about five minutes each night before you go to sleep, think through the freehoodship adventure you’ve experienced so far, but think it through backwards from the last mission to the first, the moment you lit the candle. Watch yourself as though from outside yourself as you move through the days and weeks, as though you’re watching yourself in a movie. Do this exercise for three days, trying to remember new details each time and looking for fresh insights.
Why? Because, like Socrates (the great philosopher hero) says, “the unexamined life is not worth living.”
