“study the fall line and plan your turns”
Narrator, storyteller, raconteur, griot, we have lots of labels for those who tell tall tales. But why do we feel compelled to share our thoughts? I thought I better understand that a bit more before I put myself out there.
The New York Times Customer Insight Group released a study that shows people share things for five common reasons:
- To reveal valuable and entertaining content to others
- To define themselves to others
- To grow and nourish relationships
- For self-fulfillment
- To get the word out about brands and causes they like or support
I had the first four of these in mind when I created this site…seeing the fifth reason led me to add the Village Schools link.
Village Schools has long been one of Nancy and my favorite charities. We got to know them while living in Tanzania. They do more for less than any group I’ve ever met…and they continue to deliver vital services to an ever-expanding community in real need. Click the image below to check out their website. (spoiler alert: there is a pronounced religious emphasis…but it does not detract from the excellence of their work).
