Essential Skills for 21st Century Survival: Part 6: Storytelling

Essential Skills for 21st Century Survival: Part 6: Storytelling | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"In today’s polarized and fractured narrative landscape, the winners are those who can get above the noise and weave new mythologies that act as a beacon of light for the path ahead."

 

How here's some great food for thought about storytelling, how our cultural landscape is changing, and new stories that are emerging via businesses. The author suggests we've fallen into a myth gap.  As the author says, "People are disillusioned and lacking trust, and a new story infused with simplicity, aesthetics, beauty and grace will go far."

 

Are your stories big enough? Are they sustainable over time and space? Do your stories touch on the qualities the author lists?

 

I would love to know what do you think about this article & video and how it might shape your thinking/actions in 2012.....

Content Creation vs Content Curation: Is It Really An Either Or?

Content Creation vs Content Curation: Is It Really An Either Or? | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

There is no curation without original content. However, curators can expand the readership and help their niche find meaning and insight in the material as it relates to them. 

 

There is too much information. The author explains that the real power of content marketing lies in the orginal content creation. Mixing curated content with your original content builds authority. There is a video "Is Your Content Good Enough To Be Curated"? That's where it is for all of us that write. Why would anyone curate my post?

Thanks for this article. I agree with you that it isn't an either/or - you need to curate to create good quality content.
