Thought for the Day - Live a Great Story

"People love to have lived a great story. but few people like the work it takes to actually live that story."

-- Donald Miller

Donald Miller in his book "A Million Miles in a Thousand Years" shares how to experience better stories and how to live them. He looks at your life as a story that you get to write, experience and edit. The book challenges you to live better stories and a better life. Donald sums it up great by saying " If you watched a movie about a guy ho wanted a Volvo and worked for years to get it, you wouldn't cry when he drove it off the lot.. Nobody cries at the end of a movie about a guy who wants a Volvo. But we spend years living those stories , and expect our lives to feel meaningful." Now the big But comes in, you don't and won't get to live better stories unless you are willing to put in the work. And here comes another But, but it's worth it. So time to get busy living better stories...
