Why Stories Work Better Than Advice.

Ever have something really important to say to someone? Something you know will help? Some bit of wisdom or advice that can make a big difference. Could be at work, at home, in your personal life.

So, what’s the best way to “get your point across?” How do you share your idea in a way where the person you most want to get it…gets it? Then, acts on it. Instead of rejecting it out of hand.

Turns out, framing your wisdom in the form of a well-told story, rather than a point or moral or bit of advice, demand, order or imperative, can work wonders. It can bypass all the automatic defenses that lead us to reject being “told what to do.”

That’s what today’s Good Life Project Riff is all about.
