Some interesting stories…


that I had wanted to post when I read them, but was too lazy to :p

I believe stories are key to the way we persuade, and I enjoy the fit and sense of completeness when someone makes a pertinent point with an appropriate story.  Here are some excellent examples :)

The panhandler’s secret [Seth’s Blog] – Couldn’t come up with a better moral for the story than Seth’s own: Interact first, sell second.

The disappointed Coca Cola salesman [~synthesis~] – Again, the moral is supplied by the writer: The audience matters most.  I find that this rule – drummed into me during university while I was doing communication studies – serves one well whenever and whatever we communicate.

Heaven and hell with long-handled spoons [Harga-Blog] – A very nice way to make the point that our mindset – and in this case we are using the word quite precisely, referring to the mind’s being set on something, reluctant to change its shape – determines whether we live happily or not.
