Provide the starter

There’s plenty out there that tells us how to do it. Sure, there’s some value in it. But if this is all you’re giving your audience, they may just skim over it.

Where the real value lies is in giving people just enough of what they need to figure it out themselves. This is how real change is made.

If you can provide people with that germ — that starter seed — that sprouts new connections, fires multiple synapses, and evokes emotion after fractal emotion, I think you might have something worth hanging on to.
