Your Daily Dose of Storytelling – Jul 29, 2023

Ever wonder why some ideas stick and others fade away? Neuroscience tells us that our brains are wired to respond to stories. In fact, stories are 22 times more memorable than facts alone.

Now, imagine the power of applying storytelling to your life!

Case in point: Remember Apple’s iconic 1984 Super Bowl commercial? This wasn’t just another product pitch. It was an evocative narrative that pitted a lone runner (representing Apple) against a dystopian regime (Big Brother a.k.a IBM). It forever transformed tech marketing. The clear villains, heroes, and high stakes – the secret sauce of great storytelling – made Apple’s saga unforgettable.

Translation for us mere mortals? Whether you’re prepping for a big pitch, a meeting with clients, or a chat with colleagues, harness the magic of stories. They work because they connect to the emotional processing centers of our brains, helping us empathize, connect, and remember.

Start your narrative with real-life scenarios. Paint vivid characters. Add tension and a touch of suspense. That’s how you make your idea stick!
