I’m reading a book called Storyworthy
and there’s a daily reflection exercise the author recommends called Homework for Life
The idea is that at the end of every day, we should spend a few minutes thinking “What’s the most story-worthy thing that happened today?” Then we should make a spreadsheet of each of our Storyworthy moments, and over time, we’ll build up a bank of stories that we can develop and share with others.
This is legit game-changing stuff. My mind was officially blown when I read about it a few days ago, and I’ve made a public commitment (on Twitter
, follow me pls btw) to do this Homework for Life
for the next 365 days at least, and hopefully for the rest of my life.
The point isn’t just to expand our bank of stories - it also encourages us to reflect on our days in a super easy-to-do way, thus allowing us to remember snippets of our life that would otherwise pass us by.
So if you’d like to join me on this journey, I’d love for you to make your own spreadsheet (or in my case, Notion page) with the question “what’s the most story-worth thing that happened today?”.
I’ll report back in a few weeks/months with insights that I gain from this process, and it would be nice to exchange notes if anyone fancies joining along.
Have a great week!
