The Importance of Story in Your Life

I’ve already raved about Donald Miller’s A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. Watch the video again, if you want:

The book is about story, but it’s not exactly a book about writing. It’s about seeing your life like a story. It’s about living a better story. It’s about learning how to be present and interact in your life’s story.

Quite simply: it’s the type of book that can help you change your life, if you’re willing to do the work.

I spoke to Michael Hyatt at Thomas Nelson, Don Miller’s publisher. He’s a great guy, and he’s endured my public speaking a few times so far, so I give him extra credit for that. Michael very kindly offered me 100 books to give away, knowing just how much I loved Don’s book.

So, for you, a challenge:

Get a Copy of Donald Miller’s Book

(This is only open to folks in the US for this particular project. But you should still consider getting the book, no matter.)

Here’s what I’d love to do. I’d love for you to write a quick blog post about the importance of story in your life. That’s it. If you want, link back to, so I’ll see the trackbacks as well.

When you’ve submitted your post, fill out this form, and give us the URL where we can see the story. Work for you?

It’s a great book and deserves a lot of attention in 2010. I hope you decide to check it out. runs on the Genesis Framework

    Story is important in my life because it is the way tragedies are transformed into comedies. In the recent past I’ve worked for two low-rent vocational training schools. One got shut down by the feds for student loan violations and was hit by a class action lawsuit by former students. The second company imploded after a bitter fued between the mother/daughter ownership team. For employees needing income and students working toward futures this was temporarily tragic, but for me, writing and storytelling allow the comedy involved (since all shady businessowners create tragicomedies in the end) to shine through.

    Best of luck to Donald. I’ve filled out the form and hope you enjoy my story about teaching driver education for a cut-rate business in Oregon (the third tragicomedy).

    It is evident from several 2009 Ford Mustang reviews that experts agree on the styling of
    the pony car. While the 2009 Ford
    Mustang coupe exudes coolness in exterior styling
    the 2009 Ford
    Mustang Shelby versions
    are more aggressive typical of a muscle car. Ford offers plenty of styling

    One of the more beautiful designs to come from the house of Alexander McQueen lately, the Wicca velvet shoulder bag is a stand-out piece for fall. The plush velvet and rich fuchsia color of the Wicca Velvet Shoulder bag are in keeping with the opulence that McQueen is known for but are not so dramatic that it wouldn’t still look great with jeans and a

    This change happened gradually during the 3rd and 4th centuries, and the
    reasons for adopting the codex form of the book are several: the format
    is more economical, as both sides of the writing material can be used;
    and it is portable, searchable, and easy to conceal.
