Saying more with less is either harder or easier depending upon how you approach it. In some ways, I think it is harder to say something extra powerful in just six words. For famed author, Ernest Hemingway, it was a sad tale. So few word, such a sad story.
What I love about this concept is how addictive it is. Once you get started, it’s almost like a game to say something so deep or wildly funny in just six words. I challenge everyone to do your best. Look at this not just as another assignment, but as something to tackle like a great puzzle.
Just like slogans, a six word thought that’s really good has longevity, standing the test of time. New York Yankee’s legend Yogi Berra probably didn’t mean to create a six word story when he said “It ain’t over til it’s over”, but it has come to be said time and again with a deep meaning.
Take the challenge. Say more with less. Who can come up with THE most memorable Six Word Story?
