You are making small talk with a stranger and come to find out something remarkable about his or her life. Therein lies your story for the day.


Day Three Hundred Thirty-Three

Variety adds flavor. Too much variety can cause chaos. What if you were to eliminate variety altogether? Choose one type of food to have for dinner every night for the rest of your life. What would that food be?


Day Three Hundred Thirty-Two

A newspaper headline catches your eye. Why?


Day Three Hundred Thirty-One

You hear their voices behind the wall when you pick up your mail everyday. Transcend the wall and write their story.


Day Three Hundred Thirty

An old, refurbished school bus now contains all your belongings. Where are you going?


Day 329

I'm thankful for ground cover. My cell phone, after dropping some twenty-five feet, is still in one piece because of it. Of the many worthy things you're thankful for, be thankful for the mundane, the obscure, the unusual. Then tell its story.


Day Three Hundred Twenty-Eight

How do you find the pleasant in the unpleasant, the beauty in the ugly, the appetizing in the disgusting...the art in the splat?

Day Three Hundred Twenty-Four

On a piece of paper, write ten things about your life right now that make you unhappy. Now choose one option from the following list of ten things to do with the first list.

1. Run away from the list, far far away, hoping that the smaller the list looks to the naked eye, the smaller the items on the list will appear.
2. Attempt to remedy one item from your list per day for the rest of the month.
3. Take the list to a bonfire pit and use it for kindling to start a fire from which you will roast marshmallows (reference Day One Hundred Ninety-Two)
4. Seal the list in an envelope for 6 months. What importance will those items hold when you reread the list 6 months from now?
5. Find someone else who has read the post. Fold your lists into paper airplanes, stand on something tall, and have a flying contest.
6. Share your list with someone. Ask that person for advice...and be open to what they say.
7. Tear the list into tiny pieces. Then gather all the pieces into your hands and throw them into the air while yelling at the top of your lungs, "Happy New Year!" Mean it.
8. Separate the items on your list into two categories: (1) things I can change, and (2) things I can't change. How does this change your perspective?
9. Use only supplies you presently have near you, and craft something out of the list that makes you laugh...at it, or at yourself. It doesn't matter which, you're still laughing.
10. Find a scale and weigh your list. Now stand on the scale, think of all the things that make you happy, and smile. Which has more weight in this life?

There's no i in team, but there's an i in write. No one will do the work for you. Now suit up, get out there, give it 110%, and leave it all on the page.


Day Three Hundred Twenty

What if you were stuck...on the side of the road...in the middle of the ocean...in a blizzard...

Day 309

It's like riding a bike...


Day Three Hundred Eight

You've just walked into an arcade. If you only had the change to play one game, what would it be?
