Learning from storytelling is hardwired into our DNA. For thousands of years, even before GPS, humans have used stories to illustrate the way to a herd of animals or a batch of berries to eat. Look at religious parables. This is how we learn.
When Bill was nineteen, he read that Greyhound buses would take you from Washington, DC to Los Angeles in 5 days. He thought, "Well, if Greyhound can do it..." He and a friend set a goal to hitchhike from DC to LA in 5 days. Part of their preparation was to create signs to cities so the public would engage with them to help meet the goal. They were successful crossing the US in 5 days by hitchhiking 3 times over two summers. Bill uses those same hitchhiking signs to illustrate points in his goal setting speech and training.
