One of the most fundamental maxims of storytelling is “Show, don’t tell”--and for a good reason. Rather than talking at your audience, telling them what to do or feel, share the story so that it unfolds naturally and your audience comes to their own conclusion themselves. People don’t just absorb facts and information. They actively listen to stories and make their own inferences.

Indroneil Mukerjee's curator insight, May 6, 4:07 AM

Phew!!! 51 rules!! And you are expected to mug them up, learn them or whatever and always remember to abide by them? Over-riding your habitual behavior which, in most cases, is exactly opposite to the rules?

 Well, IMHO, from my experience with my own life as a learning leader and 5000 other business leader there is only one rule. And that is ... watch your breath. Watch it while eating, sleeping, walking working, speaking, listening, driving, swimming or whatever you are doing. It may be difficult to start with to simultaneously be in action and also be watchful But, by and by you will get it. And the day you get it, you will find you are following all 51 rules naturally!!!
