Exercise #880: Self Knowledge
Posted 12/18/20

At work, we use “You rock!” a lot as a sign of approval; the recipient has done something really well. I’m not sure where this saying came from but I got to wondering . . . what kind of rock is he or she?

Turn this one inward - I say to you “You rock!” What kind of rock are you and why?
