We are super excited to announce that “Dream It!: A Playbook to Spark Your Awesomeness” will be translated into Simplified Chinese by Hunan Education Publishing House Branch. Coming March 2021.
Our motto is: Dream It! Map It! Play! Our first book Dream It! is all about finding a dream — the hardest and most important step. But we won’t leave you hanging there. Soon we’ll post resources for mapping (planning) and playing (doing).
Dream > Map > Play = Dreamaplay
Meanwhile, the website got bigger than anticipated, which is good. We’re not going to run out of fun stuff anytime soon. Here are a few things that are floating to the top of our to-do list. In other words, dreams that we have promoted to full-fledged goals:
- Need extra pages for your Playbook or just want to leave inspirational notes for friends and family? We’re working on a Bucket List notepad.
- A birthday party game pack. How fun would a new dream be as a birthday present!?
- Hopefully, this fall will be launching a new card game on Kickstarter. This will go along with the book to teach valuable concepts and make them real by learning through play.
- The sequel — Map it! Stay tuned for stories about how we make the book. And free games to test the new content.
- A new social media game: Collect the pieces to a puzzle and win a prize.
- And more fun pencil and paper games for kids… We have hundreds of dreams in the queue — that’s no exaggeration!
- In conjunction with World Vision, we’re developing a new workshop that teaches all 3 steps of our process. This will be a great resource for everyone that finished “Dream it!” and are ready to begin mapping and playing their dreams.

Of course, there are still a lot of hurdles, but we’re getting to be good hurdlers. Imagine a world full of kids that have the hope and grit to live their dreams. Keep your fingers crossed.
