Write Your Life by Jessica Coleman – Review
‘Write Your Life: The Ultimate Life Hack For Achieving Your Dreams’ by Jessica Grace Coleman is an unusual self development book.

Write Your Life – what it is about

In a nutshell, this book shows you how to design and live your ideal life but not by the author simply telling you what to do. She initially takes you on her journey, sharing her knowledge, fears, and aspirations. She explains, from the heart, how she set about writing her personal story, what she wrote about and where it led. She then shows you how to do the same, i.e., to write your own story. By the end of her book you will have written a unique story about your life that you could then decide to publish if you so wished.

‘Write your Life’ is easy to read. You are taken gently through action steps and writing exercises at the end of chapters that get you thinking about questions you have probably never asked yourself before. Each chapter ends with a summary of important points to keep in mind and to concentrate your thinking.

The chapter entitled ‘Resources’ contains additional useful information for your continued journey such as other books, podcasts, videos, and apps. There is also a ‘Write Your Life Workbook’ which comprises writing exercises and worksheets that you can complete in your own time.

The book also helps you to figure out what you really want to do in (and with) your personal and professional life. It shows you how to transform your life from just accepting what happens to you, to taking specific action to change its course towards new directions.

Write Your Life – self development summary

The author says her mission is “to help people change their lives through writing.” Her book appears to do just that. She has a deep perspective and understands the working of the human mind. Also, as you go through the book you realise that if an introvert like her was able to achieve exactly what she wanted in life, then there is much hope for others.

If you are stuck in a rut, or confused about what direction you should be heading, or want to change something in your life, this is the book for you. It will help you to determine exactly what you want to do with your life and how to get there. It would also be very helpful for anyone who has no clue (or has never thought about) the life and lifestyle they want to live.
