On my weekly run with my good friend, running partner and fellow re-framer, DR, we were discussing the concept of being multipassionate.

As we were running, DR asked:

Isn’t everyone a multipassionate?

Being raised within a liberal arts influence, he felt it was just natural to like many things.

Yes, but…

I thought just because you liked many things, it wasn’t it.

In my heart, I understand and feel what it means to be a multipassionate. And sadly, I just realized that I have no idea how to articulate it to the world in a concise way.

I need a tagline.

An elevator pitch.

The explainer video.

I need a statement that encompasses what I know and feel. I need the one-liner that would go across a t-shirt, hat or social media post.

Later that afternoon, I edited the new home page for The 100X Life publication here on Medium and was challenged to write the tagline

Living is a lifelong practice

Living is a lifelong practice is what came to me at that time. It came from the idea that its a practice to live your best self. The more you practice, the more do, see and be.

As I wrote that, I got inspired to do a quote post on Instagram. But what came out was a slight reframe to the original idea.

Being happy is a lifelong practice

That’s nice but something was missing. It didn’t sit well. It wasn’t right in my mind because what you practice is essential. Are you practicing good or bad habits? Whatever you choose, you get better!

What I want to convey is that you just have to do it because life is short. Do it all. Just do it?

Hmm… I thought to myself, I should write this on my blog.

Below are a few taglines, slogans, and one-liners that I am putting on paper and out to the world to see how it falls and feels as I press publish.

Life is short.

Life is short. Do.

Life is short. Play

Life is short. Sing.

Life is short. Dance.

Life is short. Create.

Life is short. Write.

Life is short. Draw.

Life is short. Run.

Life is short.

Let me know what you think, I’d love to get your thoughts, comments and feedback.

p.s. I am pretty happy and excited that I started publishing on Medium again. It provides me with a space to practice my writing while sharing my thoughts with you.
