Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person

The instant New York Times bestseller from the creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away With Murder shares how saying YES changed her life. “As fun to read as Rhimes’s TV series are to watch” (Los Angeles Times).

She’s the creator and producer of some of the most groundbreaking and audacious shows on television today. Her iconic characters live boldly and speak their minds. So who would suspect that Shonda Rhimes is an introvert? That she hired a publicist so she could avoid public appearances? That she suffered panic attacks before media interviews?

With three children at home and three hit television shows, it was easy for Shonda to say she was simply too busy. But in truth, she was also afraid. And then, over Thanksgiving dinner, her sister muttered something that was both a wake up and a call to arms: You never say yes to anything.Shonda knew she had to embrace the challenge: for one year, she would say YES to everything that scared her.

The Year of Yes Journal

In addition to the book, the year of yes journal is a month by month, day by day, with each month highlighting a theme (“Yes to Doing,” “Yes to Help,” “Yes to Who I Am”). Daily, you can track what you say YES to and keep notes about how that decision has made a unique impact; monthly, you will find journaling prompts for reflection around that specific theme. With a check-in section at the six-month mark, as well as at year end, and encouragement from Shonda along the way, you will have ample opportunity to track how YES has transformed your daily life.
