Whenever we have something epic to tell, we say “It’s a long story.”

The long stories are the ones we love. The story how you found this amazing new person in your life, or your best travel experience or managed to get this amazing project done. 

We crave long stories. Why is it then that we spend our lives working for the short ones? The whole self-help industry is based on shortcuts and quick wins. Everybody is looking for quick wins in their private lives, work performance and daily experience. 

Is our obsession with shortcuts the reason we don’t have enough long stories to share?
