If you are like me, the way we remember a fun time, a great movie, significant event in our lives is by a saying or one-liner. One-Liners have been used by advertisers to create slogans or catch phrases that are meant to get your attention and to get you to remember something or a product forever. We all remember, even from our childhood, memorable one-liners, or slogans that when a topic comes up in a discussion, we all recite the one-liners in unison.
When my brothers and I are together, we talk in one-liners - from the movies we watched over and over, or the things our parents or family would say about us, as we did what boys do. Over the years I have used one-liners from books, courses, or mentors to remember important leadership points to live by, to help keep myself on the right track, or to start conversations or challenge others thinking when the opportunity arises.
