Mini Sagas: Bite Sized Lessons For Life and Business

Rajesh Setty

August 06, 2008

50 words is not a lot. Sometimes, though, you can say a lot in 50 words. Add a good picture to the background and you have a story in 50 words. In this photographic manifesto (the first in ChangeThis history) Rajesh Setty has compiled 15 mini sagas from his collection. Each 50 word story is packed with a lesson on life and/or business.Our hope is that you will enjoy these stories and it will inspire you to write your own mini saga on a topic of your interest. From Mini Sagas: "A mini saga is a story told in exactly 50 words—not 49 or 51 but in exactly 50 words. Benefit #1: Writing a mini saga expands your creativity. Constraints typically expand creativity or induce flight. When you have to put everything in 50 words, you have to 'leave behind' a lot. That's where the creative juices start flowing. Benefit #2: Writing a mini saga stretches your thinking. What will you write about? You have to think about topics that will fit in 50 words or squeeze them to fit in 50 words. That puts thinking on overdrive mode. Benefit #3: Writing a mini saga enhances your discipline. Deciding what to write about, deciding what to leave behind and putting it in 50 words requires discipline throughout."
