The Fish Story
 www.tudorgirba.com
Based on
                  The Fish Story,
       a story with Indian origins
from Presentation Zen, the book.
I want to open a
  fish store.




   Vijay, a young indian
we sell fresh fish here
we sell fresh fish here


“we” is not really needed




             the Father
fresh fish sold here
fresh fish sold here


“here” is superfluos




          the Brother
fresh fish sold
fresh fish sold


 it’s clear that
the fish is sold.




          the Sister
fresh fish
fresh fish


everyone can see that
  the fish is fresh.




          the Neighbor
fish
fish


everyone can identify the
   fish by the smell.




            Vijay himself
I still think fresh
should be stated.




             and Me
fresh
Omit needless words.

  • It's difficult to say a lot without saying too much.
    I was there when you presented the fish story in Lugano at USI, and I have to admit that the presentation you gave has been a real awakening call. Since then, it's a pleasure to notice the reaction of my audience each time I give a presentation. Finally they are listening, they are interested and active. Thanks.

  • Can apply this in life. There is a Cantonese saying, 'More said, more mistakes'. Thanks for sharing.
