When I started these 1-Minute Inspirations on October 6, 2010, I made a personal commitment to release a new video every Wednesday morning for a full year. I ended up creating a video each week for fourteen months. Then I stopped, for two reasons. I wasn’t sure that the time required each week was worth the limited response when measured by number of viewings. And I wanted to apply what I had learned about creating brief topical videos to the needs of a particular group of people I am concerned about: those who are grieving. Over the next couple of years I actually created three new resources for the bereaved. The one most like 1-Minute Inspirations is entitled “100 Healing Messages for Your Grief: Videos Filled with Help, Comfort, & Beauty.” It’s now available on a subscription basis, with emailed videos arriving every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning for eight months. You can learn more about this program here.
For the next three weeks my weekly 1-Minute Inspirations post will take the form of one of the one hundred videos that make up this new resource. Several of them turned out, as you’ll see, like 1½-Minute Inspirations.
