A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

The relates to people who are in an educational role (i.e. teacher, trainer, coaches, mentor). In order for person(s) you are teaching to learn you have to allow them to do the work because that is the only way for them to learn. It may be tempting for you to continue to model and take the lead but it is important for the person you are teaching to learn from their mistakes. From these mistakes you have growth.
