In this episode of the podcast, author Patti Digh talks about honoring the intentions of our legacy, writing in our truest voice, and not getting caught up in the stories we tell ourselves. 


  • Why we never know where we are in the journey of life
  • Writing in your true voice 
  • The points that become moments of significance in our lives
  • The power of putting yourself in a position of not knowing 
  • Why we can’t judge and learn at the same time 
  • Living in the space between the things we think are incredibly significant 
  • Not getting caught up in the stories we tell ourselves
  • Three keys to dealing with our losses 
  • Why pain can be incredibly powerful 
  • How telling the darker parts of stories can liberate us
  • The 4 Levels of Story and How They Impact Our Work 
  • Why the obstacles are necessary for a great story


It’s often said that the shortest distance between two people is a story.  

The choice that we always have in a hotspot or place of discomfort is to learn.

We have the capacity to shift our stories anytime we want to. 

Patti's award-winning blog, 37days.com, emerged from the lessons she learned by asking that question and soon the essays were crafted into the bestselling book LIFE IS A VERB: 37 Days to Wake Up, Be Mindful, and Live Intentionally. Patti has since written FOUR-WORD SELF-HELP: Simple Wisdom for Complex Lives, CREATIVE IS A VERB: If You're Alive, You're Creative, and WHAT I WISH FOR YOU: Simple Wisdom for a Happy Life.
