Since the dawn of time men and women have told stories. More than anything this is what makes us human. Stories is how we’ve passed on our knowledge to the next generation.
We’ve told stories of all kinds – through songs, through cave paintings, through rhymes, through books and through every kind of imaginable medium.
We still do.
Stories are what binds us together and what can tear us apart. If the stories we believe to be the most true are too different we might have a hard time getting along.
If you believe that a man walked on water and will save us all in the end and someone else believes that a spaceship will come and take the righteous ones away at judgment day, then we might have trouble getting along.
My point here is that stories is a very human phenomenon, and if you want to level up as a human you must learn how to tell a good story. No matter your chosen profession, stories will increase your impact, and the better stories you’re able to tell about yourself, your work, your organization and the ideas in your mind, the more successful you will be.
In order to be the best you, you can be, you must learn to tell a magnificent story, a beautiful story and a terrifying story.
