Why I love Donald Miller’s Storyline

I’ve been using Donald Miller’s Storyline resource for about two months…maybe three…and I love it. It’s made me realize that I need to add a resource page to my site. Which I will do. Soon.

There is a workbook, as well as a free daily organizer download. I’ve used calendars and organizers forever. My favorite part is filling out all the preliminary information on fresh pages. But this one is different.

You start out your day writing down what you would do if you could do your day all over again. Except your day hasn’t started. I never rarely write “work more.” Instead I write things like, “play with the boys” or “spend time with the kids.” That’s what I’ll regret not doing. So at the end of the day, if I’ve accomplished the things on the “do all over again” list, I won.

You start every day with your priorities and end every day feeling accomplished.

There is also room for rewards, three projects, a handful of appointments, a to-do list, and a place for your life theme.

Every day, you write your life’s theme.

I didn’t know mine until I bought the Storyline workbook. I love it. I’m still working through it. Did I say I love it?

I’ve been thinking a lot about life themes. My life theme, in general. Every day, you write your life’s theme on the bottom of the paper. And it’s changed almost every day except for the last two weeks. I think I’ve finally nailed it.

Help young women live their best life possible.

If I have to sum up my life’s purpose and mission, I think that could be it. Help young women live their best life possible. This ranges from dating, like in my book The Cinderella Rule, or beyond engagement into marriage and having children. It can helping young women build better character, cook better meals, be nice to their co-workers, or determine what their life’s purpose is. 

I want to help you be your best self. Whoever you are, wherever you’re sitting on the other side of this screen. I care about you. I’m glad our life bubbles intersected today. I am praying for you and for the irritating, frustrating, wonderful moments that you’re experiencing.

My first resource on the resource page will be Donald Miller’s Storyline. I love it. I think you’ll love it, too.
