And the game I experimented with is drawing an Insight instead of exploring for one in the external world. my insight   When I thought about addressing a few of the Habit Zero challenges by drawing an Insight, I thought about the technical aspects of drawing. I didn’t give much thought to the process of internal exploration: deciding what to draw. You can first look around you, find something inspired by the Seed, and draw it, but today, I chose a different process: I closed my eyes and searched internally for something inspired by Tension. And this is what I saw: I was surprised by the association. Verbally, a kite is not the first thing I would have thought of as an association for Tension.

If you feel the upcoming challenge is somewhat childish that’s great! One of the important things we are aiming for is to recreate the way we imagined and created as children.
