Storyline Blog: Create Your Life Plan Online

I don’t remember how I found them, but I ended up reading a couple of Donald Miller’s Books, which are written in such an accessible style that I really enjoyed them. He also has a blog (although he isn’t the only one who writes posts), and a company that assists people to make plans for their lives: to turn their lives into a better story. I use (part of) his One Project-Two Project-Three Project idea for structuring my day. Here are a few posts from his blog:
