Stay in the Bit

Aaron McManus

I've got a simple storytelling tip that will instantly improve your stories. 

Doesn't matter if it's a negotiation, presentation, job interview, new client meeting... whatever.

It comes from some of the highest paid storytellers out there - Jerry Seinfeld and Louie C.K. 

They know what they're talking about.

It's insanely simple.

When your audience is reacting, don't react to them.

Stay in the bit.

Keep the energy of your story. 

Keep driving home to your point.

Keep your focus.

Don't react to their reaction.

Just because they laugh doesn't mean you have to break your composure.

Just because they get uncomfortable doesn't mean you have to lose your cool.

Just because they want to start telling you about what Aunt Mildred did last week doesn't mean you have to lose the floor. 

When you start a story, it's really important that you have a point. 

Like when you're telling a joke. You've gotta get to the punchline. No matter how the audience reacts, if you just give up when you're on stage, you lose.

If you stick with it, you win.

It's so simple, but it's essential.
