Make a Scene Part II

So, now I have set my scene here. A scene where I am staying in Bangkok. Moving from Malaysia to Thailand with my family. In the time of the pandemic. 

This scene may relate to the others. I am setting the stage to attract other people who may be assisted with my story or blog. That is the best thing that I could do now. I would not like people could face something that we have encountered. I hope they could take our experience for their more significant goods. 

So I am learning this as part of training which my company is holding. The training is called 'Telling Stories". I do love how our trainer/ facilitator invites us to think like a movie director. Give the best of your effort in the first 3 minutes of your presentation, then tell the story. So he gave us a lifetime of homework to watch a movie in the first 3 minutes. The central theme could be obtained in the first 3 minutes.

For example, in Harry Potter, the first 3 minutes of the theme show the spectators how Harry lost his parent. That is it, it is a story about an orphan who is looking for his identity. The wizarding world is the prob of the main themes. He also showed us about Walking Dead, the clip from Lalisa, etc.

When I tried to understand, it gave me a lot of things to think about. It is not only telling about stories, working in making presentations, and so on, but it also has a more profound philosophical idea. It is also about finding ourselves, how we are trying to sell ourselves or develop ourselves. 

I related this when I gave a sharing session to an online class. I realized that telling the stories of myself gave me a better perspective about myself. It also gives me more confidence in sharing what I have done and what skills that I have. Telling myself, telling my skills, telling my experience on how it could relate to the class. What are they required, and what are the expectations. All are related, and the theme is telling it all.

I feel thankful and grateful for this training. I hope I can learn more and am very keen to take more insight from the training. Insya Allah.
