It’s a different kind of messaging impact between

Next so what is a simple story structure.


Each story has

Beginning: a person with a problem

Have you heard of a famous social experiment about the “BECAUSE”

Did I hear NO?

Let me tell you.

In a big organization, you might have seen printer or cutter and so the lines to get that those done.

The experiment was done around that area to see what persuade a person to do something for others or to sacrifice something to help others.

The one batch asked a simple word: Can I cut in line?

And the simple reply was Noooo.

However, when the second batch said the other reason, it was quite interesting.

They said that: Can I cut in line because my boss needs them really early?

People were eager to let them. Even as rubbish as because I need to get it done fast.

See the power of because and simply “You Get Because”
