The Story of Telling

The Story of Telling Monthly Update


Hi <<First Name>>,

From the time my son Kieran was ten, he told everyone who asked that he wanted to be a LEGO designer when he grew up. Some people tried to temper his enthusiasm, not because they were unkind, but to alleviate his disappointment in advance. A lot of people laughed at him. The odds were against him. His chances were slim. But Kieran just kept saying (and more importantly believing), somebody's got to do it, why not me?

One of the reasons our stories don't resonate or our ideas don't fly is that deep down we don't believe in them ourselves. We think it's all been said and done before. We question who we are and what right we have to say what we're saying, do what we're doing or dream what we're dreaming. We stop asking—why not me?

The world needs more people like you. People with the conviction of their ideas and courage to share them. People who want to do work they are proud of and create the future we all want to see. I'm looking forward to helping you to do that again next year.

Have a restful holiday season.
Thank you for being here. It's a privilege to share ideas with you.


P.S. I'm glad (and proud) that Kieran found the courage to keep believing in and sharing his passion and ideas.
