What’s your story?

I wrote before about “what are you working on?” being a better question than “what do you do?” but this one takes it a step further. This question opens up the conversation to whatever the person wants to share and talk about. It lets someone tell you who he/she is – no limits, no expectations, no rules. It gives you an opportunity to possibly gain insight into the person you’re talking to beyond the day-to-day.

But even if you ask this question, people may still limit their answer to the question they’re used to hearing or thought they heard. Not much you can do about that, necessarily.

But what if someone asked you?

What’s your story?

How do you answer that question?

I’m still figuring that out, but I do think that the first step is to live a story worth telling. Some resources that can help you with that (affiliate links where applicable):
