The 100 Word Story
This is an entry in the occasional series called “Off the Clock.” Just a little something that lands somewhere between Timeless & Timely and arrives on Saturdays. Just for fun. Be sure to subscribe for more words.
“When you wish to instruct, be brief; that men’s minds take in quickly what you say, learn its lesson, and retain it faithfully. Every word that is unnecessary only pours over the side of a brimming mind.” ― Cicero
If someone asked you to tell your story in exactly 100 words, could you do it?
Warby Parker did.
They told their entire history in 100 words.
One hundred words that arrived with a pair of sunglasses I ordered. In the form of a cleaning cloth.
I’m reminded every time I clean my glasses.
Can you do the same?*
*In case you were curious, the above entry was exactly 100 words, including the quote from Cicero.
