StoryTellers – Part 1

May 19, 2009

To reinforce the importance of stories and storytelling, take a look at all of the storytellers around you. 

I was at a block buster movie recently (another example of a story in our modern world) and it was packed.  Everyone wanted to experience the latest story.  This got me thinking.  I am not so different from the next guy and I know that I would love to write the next great epic movie or book.  The commonality of this desire was born out when I met with a colleague recently and he said that one of his dreams would be to finish the book that he already was 1/3rd of the way through writing.  I don’t believe that he and I are alone.  I think that many of us want to be storytellers.

Now, granted, I am a storyteller at least in my keynote programs and training sessions.  But, I would still like to be able to write fiction and tell the next great tale.  And, as I mentioned in a previous post, there seems to be an evolutionary reason for this.

I would like to propose the following premise:  We are all storytellers

So, here are 2 great questions:

What story is your life telling?
What story is your business, company or organization telling?

In both cases, I wish for you that your story is compelling, remarkable and fun!

More to come…
