Ask your book club members how many of them have a life plan they have committed to in writing and use to help guide them through the rest of their lives. If some answer yes, ask if they feel it is a valuable thing to have. In what ways? If not, do they think that having one would be valuable? Why?
Based on that discussion, decide if your group wants to read “Write, Open, Act” together.
You can read “Write, Open, Act” as a group and use the workbook to discuss what came up for you and your own life-planning process.
Some discussion ideas:
- Discuss the purpose of “Write, Open, Act.”
- How did it succeed? What did you learn from reading the workbook?
- What was your favorite quote in the book? What favorite quotes do you cite to stay positive in life?
- What passage left an impression? How did it impact you?
- What issues did the workbook bring to light for you?
- Have you started your Intentional Life Plan? How did it go? Do you want to share your plan with the group for feedback and ideas?
- Did you review any of the suggested reading, web links or apps? If so, would the group consider consulting any of the suggestions or reading one of the suggested books together?
After reading the workbook, you could schedule an Intentional Life Planning Day (four hours minimum) for your group, buying supplies and building plans together (maybe making it a potluck). Be sure to set up ground rules up front, including agreeing on privacy (as this is very personal work).
