The best story wins

The best story wins

It is not the person who has the best idea or the right answer that wins. It is the person who tells the most compelling story that wins.

When a topic is complex, stories are like leverage

Stories can squeeze the full potential out of something with less effort.

Stories get diverse people to focus on a single point

Stories can capture and direct attention.

Steven Spielberg said: "The most amazing thing for me is that every single person who sees a movie brings a whole set of unique experiences.

Good stories create hidden opportunities

Rory Sutherland stated that "It seems likely that the biggest progress in the next 50 years may come not from improvements in technology but in psychology and design thinking. Put simply, it’s easy to achieve massive improvements in perception at a fraction of the cost of equivalent improvements in reality."

Many ideas that have already been discovered could grow so much more if someone just explained them better.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
