Great fiction moves characters through a stirring plot.
Great writers teach that plot should consist of three strands: external, internal, and relationships. The “external” is the events that happen to a character (or what the character does), the internal is the emotional/intellectual growth of the character, and “relationships” are about deepening bonds between characters.
Seems to me that’s pretty good advice for the plot of your life, too. Whether you are getting ready to go out on a date, attend a conference, pitch a VC, or head out on vacation–whatever you are doing–be mindful of the external, internal, and relationships. Seek out new experiences, seek to learn and develop, and create opportunities to meet new people or deepen relationships with those you already know.
