Story: I Want To Do the Same Thing on the Weekend That I Do During the Week.

For the weekly videos, I now tell a story. I’ve realized that for me, and I think for many people, a story is what holds my attention and makes a point most powerfully.

This week’s story: I want to do the same thing on the weekend that I do during the week.

The episode that I describe in this story was very helpful when I was trying to pull myself out of "drift."

To read more about drift, go here, and to take a quiz to learn if you're drifting, go here.

If you want to watch more about why and how I left law for writing, and also a discussion about drift, you might enjoy the talk I gave at 5x15.

You can also read more about this in Happier at Home, chapter six.
