Today’s daily nudge was the last one of its kind. After nearly two years and over 500 nudges, I have decided that it’s time for me to rest, divert my energy to the more personal and immediate challenge of dealing with and healing from breast cancer and ultimately, to hand over the task of nudging you to you. I believe, deep down, that the person best placed to nudge us is ourselves—and that once you master the art of self-encouragement, permission and seeing the world from new angles, anything is possible.
So what I hope for is this: that whether you’ve been a faithful do-er for years, or whether you’re just visiting Only Do One Thing for the first time, you’ll take inspiration from what you’ll find here (just hit nudges in the menu to scroll through every nudge that ever was) and go on to do the little things that can make the biggest difference in life. I’ll be here, cheering you on from the sidelines.
The site isn’t going to disappear, so come back and visit anytime. And as the headline suggests, this isn’t quite the end. In the coming weeks, I’ll be publishing my Only Do One Thing book as a free ebook. In it, I suggest new ways to think about creativity, play, our bodies, love, adversity, wisdom and more, with more than 90 new nudges to boot. Subscribers will get a copy automatically, or you can drop me an email here to ensure you receive it. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I’ve loved writing it.
All that’s left to say is a heartfelt thank you. Thank you for listening. Thank you for doing. Thank you for spreading the word about Only Do One Thing (and don’t stop – if you know someone who you think would like it, forward this right on over to them now!). And most of all, thank you for telling me when you’ve really enjoyed a nudge, or if it has helped you move forward or try something new or do what you didn’t think was possible. Thank you. There are no words to adequately describe how wonderful these stories are to hear.
Today’s final nudge was ‘nudge yourself’. And I hope you will.
PS: The Donate function is now fixed, for those who’ve asked. And thank you.
