Years ago this quote — from the book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller — changed my life:
If what we choose to do with our lives won’t make a story meaningful, it won’t make a life meaningful either.
Because back when I ran my successful studio/prodco, I had always considered myself a storyteller. But until I began viewing my life as a story (in contrast to the “stories” which my creative firm produced) something was amiss.
So knowing that we creative entrepreneurs tend to be reflective this time of year, you are likely pondering questions right now like:
“What did I accomplish this past year?”⠀
“What do I want for my business in the year ahead?”⠀
“Where is this all headed?”
Consider the narrative of your business, your career, and your life…
Would it make a good story?
See you next year,
