The most incredible growth I experience is learning to polish the way I present a picture versus the 1000 words that it would take to describe what one picture can say.
For instance, trying to direct someone with written instructions for driving to a particular destination. If you get them to the general area and then suggest a particular landmark like a church or bank, often, the light bulb turns on for them.
This is true in most of life’s situations as well. Most people don’t want to be told what to do or which way to go but often love to hear others’ experiences. The picture can provide a glorious view of the landscape when we are headed down a particular road in life.
Consider how children love to hear the story of how they were born. Little girls like to hear about their Mom’s wedding. Little boys want to know about their Dad’s first car. Stories provide more insight, engage the emotion and make remembering the details easier.
