Matthew Cornell – ebook Review

June 29, 2010

Last week I said I would review Matthew Cornell’s ebook – “You did What? 99 Experiments to Live a Happier and Healthier Life”  So, here it is.

Cornell’s philosophy really is that we need to keep life interesting in order to help ourselves be resilient in dealing with change.  He writes about the necessity of experimenting with aspects of your life, and offers 99 ways to go about this.

The experiments are divided into eight focuses – Mindset, Emotions, Relationships,  Being Present, Community, Just for Fun, Health, and Work.  Cornell isn’t advocating any major life-changes – just small relatively safe ‘experiments.

I’m looking at the list, and honestly, I think this looks kind of fun.  The next time my life settles down…..and it’s bound to sooner or later…. I’m going to give these a try.

If you want to give Cornell’s ebook a try, there is a link to his website on the right hand side of this blog.    Go ahead – have a mini-adventure, right in your own life.

    Thanks very much for the review, Fran! I’m trying to get people thinking about treating life as a rich experiment, and the ebook is a start. If this resonates with any of your readers, I invite them to check out the great stuff people are doing at Edison, the Think, Try, Learn Experimenter’s Journal: . I’d love to have folks who try one of the 99 Things to put their experiment into Edison. Following along and giving support is fun.

    P.S. A good link for folks to check out for You Did WHAT? is

    Thanks again,
