Three Things I Know to Be True
« on: January 19, 2012, 10:05:47 PM »
So I found this video to be brilliant:
Sarah Kay (Brilliant) @ TED
and in it, Sarah mentions a great brainstorming exercise. 

Name three things you know to be true:

The rules:

1.  Be nice, don't use your truth to bash anyone else, to tout your political or religious beliefs... etc.  Let's talk about basics... and don't think too hard.

2.  Don't think to hard.

3. Have fun.

1.  Words have power, they breathe and pulse and can make you fly or break your heart.

2.  Love is good... loving someone is amazing... even if they don't love you back.

3.  Peanut butter tastes really good on a bacon cheeseburger, as long as you leave off the veggies and other condiments.

1. Sometimes it's better not to let people know what you are thinking...

2. Sometimes it's easier to pretend ignorance.

3. But it is not always as fun or interesting to do either.
