When we think about our lives as a narrative and ourselves as the protagonist, things look differently. We are starring in an epic story that is disguised as our lives. In thinking about the concept of story, there are a lot of things to consider, but a great place to start is this TEDTalk by Andrew Stanton. Stanton knows a thing or two about story as his credentials include Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, and Monsters Inc. He covers quite a bit of ground, but it is a great 20 minutes to reframe our conversations in the context of stories we tell.
