Life Evaluation is about examining your life in the present day and taking action to shape the future.
Recall your favorite subject in high school, and list 3 reasons why you liked it.
How to do it
Think back to your high school education and recall which class you enjoyed the most. Was it your favorite because you excelled at the subject? Or maybe you had a teacher who inspired you to learn? List 3 reasons why you liked it. (Hated school? Try to think of one positive part of the experience, whether it happened in the classroom or not.)
Why it matters
What we enjoy and appreciate says a great deal about ourselves. Recalling a favorite subject of study is a great way to remember that learning needn't be a chore, but that it can be fun. By breaking away from the assumption that learning - or even work - is a chore rather than a joy, you can break through negative stereotypes and find pleasure in unexpected places. You may even find that you're inspired to learn more about a specific topic.
Woody Allen once said, "When I was in school, I cheated on my metaphysics exam: I looked into the soul of the boy sitting next to me."

I've always loved the sciences. Physics, Psychology, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Physiology. It always sparked my curiosity, I could read or learn something and then spend days studying it learning as much as I could.
Some helped my progress toward the job I always wanted (autopsy tech) and others help me with the job I have now (spiritual teacher)
One would be surprised to know how much Quantum Sciences tie into theology :)

To be quite honest, I loved every subject in high school except Math. I enjoyed going to ROTC although they stiffed me on my uniform. I enjoyed reading because it allowed me to see places I never would've, I enjoyed English because I loved writing and still do, I enjoyed Social Studies/History because again it allowed me to travel and over-stand more things than I've ever done or known before, I enjoyed Science and still do because it explains the ins and out of how and what life is, but Math was a challenge for me. Now that I'm going back to school, I'm slowly beginning to understand it.

phew. math used to be my favorite subject, and i always found the sciences so interesting. however, looking back on it all english classes were always the ones i enjoyed the most. i got my first A+ on an assignment i was proud of, writing a paper on the legalization of marijuana. english was the first class ever failed, because my teacher wouldn't take any more of my excuses for being late. english teachers are among some of the most fun and interesting i've ever had, and more and more as i get older i look back on the wealth of literature with curiosity and excitement. there are so many things to learn, so many voices to be heard and not enough time to do that and experience life for itself.
