"If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old"  Peter F. Drucker

According Matthew E. May, our guest on this Big Picture Channel podcast, "We live and work in an age of excess everything. Our businesses are more complicated and difficult to manage than ever. There is endless choice and feature overkill in all but the best experiences. Everybody knows everything about us. Everywhere, there's too much of the wrong stuff, and not enough of the right. Everything is too complicated and time-sucking. The noise is deafening, the signal weak."

"Savvy innovators have picked up on the desire for people to tune out the noise, and a key strategy is offering less, not more. They know that delivering a memorable and meaningful experience hinges on user engagement, best achieved through a subtractive, "less is best" approach in which anything excessive, confusing, wasteful, unnatural, hazardous, hard to use, or ugly is intelligently and cleverly removed...or refrained from adding in the first place."

Interviewed by producer/host of TotalPicture Radio, Peter Clayton, Matthew is the author of The Laws of Subtraction, 6 Simple Rules for Winning in the Age of Excess Everything.

Winning the Story Wars


Why Those Who Tell - and Live - the Best Stories will Rule the Future

Published on September 06 2012
Jonah Sachs, Winning the Story WarsJonah Sachs

... "we must begin each effort starring into a deep chasm. On one side is the reality that audiences are more skeptical and resistant than in any time in history. On the other is the fact that these same audiences, when inspired, are willing and able to spread their favorite messages, creating a massive viral effect for those who win their love... The nature of audience-powered success is that it can't be simply imitated and it can't be bought." Jonah Sachs

The Story Wars are all around us - they are the battle to be heard in a world of noise and clamor. In our post-broadcast world, most brand and cause messages are swallowed up and forgotten before they reach the light of day. Just a few have been able to breakthrough this clutter by using the only tool that has ever moved minds and changed behaviors - great stories.

Welcome to a Big Picture Channel Podcast on TotalPicture Radio with Peter Clayton reporting. Joining us is first-time author Jonah Sachs, the co-founder and CEO of Free Range Studios. His work on legendary viral videos like The Meatrix and The Story of Stuff series have brought key social issues to the attention of more than 65 million people online. A constant innovator, his studio's websites and stories have taken top honors three times at the South by Southwest Film Festival.

Winning the Story Wars (published by Harvard Business Review Press), is a call to arms to build iconic brands and causes in service of a better future. And it's an invitation to see today's marketing challenges as an adventure through a world of wonder, danger and limitless opportunity.

Waving Goodbye to Parkinsons Disease: A Journey of Hope


Stan and Roz Smith share their remarkable story

Published on July 06 2012
Waving Goodbye to Parkinsons DiseaseStan & Roz Smith

"It was like being trapped in a 3 year old's body with a 55 year old's brain."

W. Stanton (Stan) Smith, a successful principal at Deloitte LLP, was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease around his 51st birthday. In a high pressure business atmosphere, he struggled with Parkinson's (PD) for six years. Despite accommodation from his firm; he was in a losing battle with PD.

When TotalPicture Radio producer/host Peter Clayton first met Stan in 2005, he walked with a cane, and had tremors typical with PD. He was unable to do simple tasks, like button his shirt or load a dishwasher.

Peter got together with Stan and his wife, Roz in Westport, Connecticut, recently, to record our interview. Today, Stan walks without a cane, has no noticeable tremor, and has returned to activities he loves, like singing in his church choir.

This is a remarkable story about commitment and perseverance. Several years ago, Stan and Roz moved to the Greenville, SC area with the expectation of going on disability. However he began a special exercise program in its experimental stage and improved enough that he now has a much reduced tremor, much more mobility and a stronger voice. (As an added bonus, he was able to work for another four years before retiring in 2009).
