The long and short of it
One of the exercises I give my coaching clients involves thinking of your life as a book. What would your chapters be? What are the major turning points? What's your theme? Any obvious patterns?
I did this exercise myself but it ended up being long. Like 3000 words long. So perhaps a bit much for an About section. Still, if you're up for a rollicking 10-minute read that's full of twists and turns, trials and tribulations, here's the link: riveting but long version
If you're not, here's the short version in the form of the chapter headings. Put simply, I've made a few transitions.
