Inspiration: Daniel Goldstein’s The battle between your present and future self



Any speech introduction referencing The Odyssey has me hooked!  This is a tremendous example of storytelling and how it ALWAYS works in presentation.  Today, Tom Peters tweeted, “Stories stick! Persuasion = Compelling story! Review every presentation for its SPQ: Story Power Quotient” (Source).  Goldstein’s message is about using the present self to better the future self.  I love how he ties his thesis into his introductory story hook.  What a masterful TED Talk!
