Stories are the most primitive and powerful form of communication. The most enduring and galvanizing ideas of our civilization are embedded in our stories. It's in our genetic makeup to capture our best ideas in stories - to enjoy, to learn, to connect, and to teach.
In the book Super Simple Storytelling, author Kendall Haven explains that human minds rely on stories and story architecture as the primary roadmap for understanding, making sense of, remembering, and planning our lives. Stories also help us frame the experiences and narratives we experience along the way.
