Expectations
 QuestionParticipant’s answer
  Why did I seek out this activity?I need more focus, more reality, to be more “grounded,” and to get better organized regarding time; opportunities to talk, work, organize, and put into action what I want to do from now on; to talk and deal with the fear of the new and the unknown path.
  What do I expect to achieve by the end of the activity?To have put more order in and higher priority on what I want to do; to have guidance for how am I going to do what I want to do; to have gained some “capacity” or tools to deal with my insecurity and fear – so these do not hinder me.

Final evaluation
 QuestionParticipant’s answer
  When I compare my expectations to my results, I think that:I really saw the need to prioritize and I started the process of prioritizing between the lessons I took and in the areas where I can act. I learned a tool – [the ACT] Matrix – which will help me to walk through this process. I learned the importance of the group (any kind of group) in my personal project. Personal project does not mean isolation nor that will it happen if I isolate myself.
