Welcome to Forward Story
Thanks for visiting Forward Story. My name is Mark Casey, and this blog is where I share my thinking about the powerful ways that narrative and story can be used to help us all act in more meaningful and effective ways. Writing is just one of my pursuits. I am constantly trying to live out my own Forward Story as a husband, father, son, brother, uncle, friend, and entrepreneur.
I have practiced writing my personal Forward Story for many years now, and I am convinced it can transform your life and lead you to the future you desire. I am a walking advertisement for making a plan and working it. My first book, Forward Story: Write the Future You Desire, is a product of this approach.
What’s In It For You?
You can expect to have your thinking stimulated about where your life is now and about where you want it to go. We will discuss topics like ambition, money, adulthood, family, career, health, spirituality, and everything else that touches your future.
I plan to write any time I have something to say (instead of just having to say something).
The very best way to stay current with what I am up to is to subscribe to my newsletter. The form to sign up is nearby on the site (probably either to the right or below, depending on your browser). Just for signing up you will receive my free eBook 15 Questions to Change Your Life. I will never share your email address, and you can unsubscribe at any time.
How Should You Explore The Site?
You may choose to read the articles by category or by date written. There is a certain “unfolding” that takes place chronologically, but I think you can also check out the topics of interest to you. As a way to get started, here is sample of my writing:
- History is Story
- Reader & Advisor
- Gripped by Harriet Beecher Stowe
- Repetition & Learning
- Next Time
- What I Learned from Margot’s Frozen Yogurt
- People & Books
- Growing Up
- Using Mind Maps to Develop Your Forward Story (the first in a series on mind maps)
- How I Lost 50 Pounds (the first in a series on health)
