The power is in the interpretation

The power is in the interpretation

The Mini Saga Manifesto I published at ChangeThis has a collection of 15 mini sagas. As you know, a mini saga is a story told in exactly 50 words. My attempt was to include a lesson for life and/or business within each mini saga. Obviously, it is difficult to tell a story and also say what the lesson from the story is – all within 50 words. So I decided to just tell the stories and allow the readers to interpret the lessons.

For example, mini saga #4 (”The Deal”) is shown below. As you can see, it is just a story. The lesson is left to the interpretation of the reader.

At the point of writing, I just “wished” that somebody will interpret the lessons from these mini sagas and post them somewhere. That happened today.

Michelle Awuku, founder and leadership development coach at My Factor Coaching and Consulting posted on her blog about the lessons learned from the mini sagas. Here is the link:

Thanks Michelle.

As I have always said – there is a lot of information out there. The power is really in “interpreting” that powerfully. That’s where coaches and mentors come in.

You are welcome Rajesh!

I was inspired by the concept and discipline required to create a mini saga.

All the best, Michelle
