Essentially a good story is one that you can relate to, the ups and the downs. But that becomes a great story when you can project yourself into the protagonist shoes and be taken along for the journey. But no one wants to just see a hero that does great things, because that’s pretty boring, I wanna know how they did it, because then maybe I can do it to. So I’m thinking instead of a Neo in the documenting your journey story you need to be the Morpheus (the guide character), to get back to that matrix example. Because if your invested in the story you wanna get something out of it, you wanna be receiving value of some kind like instantaneously learning how to do Kung fu or self publish your own book. So it’s not just the story, it’s also about what value can I provide others by telling my story.
