Homework for Life

Homework for Life

Hey friends,

This time, I thought I might tell you about an exercise I have been doing for the last few months called "Homework for Life". It is an idea from the book 'Storyworthy' by Matthew Dicks. It encourages you to be more self-reflective and realise how interesting and important your life actually is.

How do you do it?

Everyday you sit down and ask yourself, "If I had to tell a 5-minute story from something that happened today, what would it be? What made this day different from the last?".
This could be a conversation you had with an old friend, a thought-provoking documentary you watched, or a place from your childhood you revisited. Write it down, whether that be on your computer or in a notebook, similar to a journal. Really think about this. Every day has a story that already exists, a meaningful moment. You can look back and re-live the feelings and emotions of these moments whenever you want.

"Utilized by thousands of people all over the world, Homework for Life not only assists people become better storytellers, but it also causes them to begin to see their lives in new, more powerful ways." - Matthew Dicks.

I found Matthew's Tedx Talk very interesting. I have linked it at the bottom if you want to find out more.

Thanks for reading!
