E221 The Perfect Fifty Project with Nancy Davis Kho

Spread the word about Experience 50!

Episode artNancy Davis Kho’s new book, The Thank You Project, Cultivating Happiness One Letter of Gratitude at a Time is a fun read and a very effective booster to feel some gratitude – even if you never write another thank you letter! Her personal 50th birthday project of writing one thank you letter each week for a year is the backdrop for Nancy’s stories and advice as she reflected on the people who helped, inspired, and shaped her life.

Who could you thank?

She suggests this question: Would you be the person you are right now if you had never met this person?  Nancy even thanks places, institutions, hobbies. In the episode, you will hear her read a letter she wrote to “All the bands I’ve loved before”.

I highly recommend you read the book or listen to it on Audible(Nancy narrates her book (!) and you can get it as your freebie with a trial membership). And if you are that person who has already begun your Christmas shopping (I’ve heard of people like you!), this is a great gift idea (under $20).
