Can You Deliver Your Message in Six Words?

I’m fascinated by a website called “Six Word Memoirs.”  This is the site that invites you to submit your life story in six words. The results are interesting and often poignant, sort of like Haiku, but even shorter.    “Found myself but lost my hair.” “Followed dreams. Often broke. Still smiling.”  “Pancreatic cancer. Not dead. Now what?”

The memoirs are compiled in a book called “Not Quite What I Was Planning.”

It’s interesting and impactful to boil down your message to just six words.

Here’s something to try. Next time, you have a presentation, see if you can boil it down to six words.

Here is my message in six words. “Audiences love passion, focus and stories.”
