Stories follow questions. A popular question that drives many stories goes, “what happens next?” But no matter what question you ask at the beginning of your story, the reader (and you) will follow that question all the way until it gets an answer (questions are powerful motivators—your brain literally won’t give up until it gets to the conclusion!) In this week’s episode I share a simple way to upgrade your story’s questions so th...

We ask for clarity, we say we want clarity, but when clarity tries to come, we also resist it. One of the reasons that clarity seems to elude us is that clarity is incredibly expensive. In today's episode, I’ll talk about what clarity costs us. What would you have to let go of in your life in order to find the clarity you’ve been craving?
