Transcript
It's a saying from a guy I really respect , his name's Les brown and he's a public speaker.
He said, never tell a story without a point. And that's great advice. And by the way, tell us the point so that we for sure get the point you want us to get. Don't think the point so obvious that you don't even need to tell us if you're going to tell us a story, tell us the point of this story too.
And he said, never tell a story without a point and never make a point without a story. And Dom, this is one of the things that I saw in some of the course creators and it's the natural tendency for human beings, to just dump all these points on people and think that they're going to get them because it makes sense logically. But people don't remember those things and they can't even stay present when there's just a big, long bunch of points without a story.
