FAQ

There is over 2 hours of video included in this course, split into 12 different videos.

2. How does this course differ from Storyline 2.0?

The format of the content
Storyline 2.0 is a physical workbook. Creating Your Life Plan is an online video course. For each module, you will watch a video and fill out a portion of the workbook PDF (either digitally or by printing it out at home).

The similarities/differences of the content

Creating Your Life Plan could easily be called Storyline 3.0, as it’s an updated version of the life planning content. While Creating Your Life Plan works through all of the same modules as Storyline 2.0, there is a new module included in this online course as well. Also, with Don and Shauna talking through the content together, there are some new perspectives offered from both of them as they discuss the modules and the application in their lives.

3. If I’ve already gone through Storyline 2.0, is there any reason I should also go through this course?

Although the content is similar, hearing Don and Shauna discuss each module in-depth will bring a new perspective to allow the content to sink even deeper.

4. How does this course differ from the Storyline Conference?

The general content of the course and the conference is similar, but is presented in a different way. The conference is lecture-based with several keynote presentations by Don. Also, at the conference, you’re hearing from several other speakers and are gathered with a couple thousand other people who are interested living a more meaningful life. The video course is conversation-driven, with Don walking Shauna through her life plan. The goal is through the conversation, you would have a better idea how to walk through the modules on your own.
