Highlighting the Transitional Moments of Your Life

While my wife and I were on our mini-vacation in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (which is an awesome and affordable city with great restaurants and river district), we stopped into this gift shop that I noticed had an interesting timeline display along one of their walls that signified the achievements they had made over the years.

This really reminded me of some of my earlier work in trying to figure out a way to create something similar to this for a blog, to highlight the key transitional moments of your life. In doing so, it made me realize how long I’ve been working on doing something like this and how it ties into becoming a map for your growth and development. For example, here’s a post of mine from back in 2005, talking about creating a way to Storyboard Your Life.

Actually even more interesting is how this relates to what Dave Gray is doing with this Visual Frameworks. As you could theoretically take these and lay them out to create a “storyboard” for your life which would tie into your narrative identity as well.

BTW Facebook has something somewhat similar to this feature of displaying key transitional moments in your life. They call it Life Events.
