The Stories You Don’t See

Who doesn’t love a great story?

In 2010, I read Donald Miller’s A Million Miles in a Thousand Years and was forever changed.

Finding the concept of story and living a life with meaning and purpose (like a story) was enough to take my life, relationships, and businesses to a whole new level. My wife and I even named our first child Story.

Moving on…

Grand stories are made up of small, easily over-looked stories. The call, the note, the joke, the stranger, the friend, the enemy, the meal, the travel, the action, the reaction, the response, and repetition of it all can be forgettable. The beat of life, relationships, and businesses goes and then and then and then and then…

And then there was today and then there will be tomorrow.

To create a life and a career that are out of the ordinary, we must continually create unforgettable moments and stories that normally would be missed or overlooked.

“Tell me and I forget…

…Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” Benjamin Franklin

Education begins with an experience. It isn’t read, it’s walked through.

We must claim our role(s) in the stories we are experiencing, because it’s our experiences that will enlighten the chapters that are approaching.

When’s the last time you invited yourself to be involved in your life?
