If you read only one thing today - make it this. Leo Widrich’s short post on why story telling is such a powerful tool.
Why is it so important? Consider
- The 2oth century was about increasing efficiency from learning. The 21st century will be about applying accelerated and more broadly shared learning
- Increasing the rate of meaningful exchange accelerates learning
- So we do well to master how to sustain meaningful exchanges.
Story telling does just that. Enough said. Go for it!
