The opening paragraphs are printed below
I was reading a book on how to make effective presentations. It suggested that you first
needed a good title one that would appeal to people by promising results. There
were several suggestions such as "10 Ways to
." and you can fill in the
blank. Maybe make money, relax, or win the lottery. Many book titles and magazine
articles use this approach. It is sort of a "top ten" list. Another suggestion
was "101 Ways" to do something. I liked that one. So that is our title 101
Ways to use a Labyrinth. The book I was reading went on to point out that if your
title is "10 Ways" then people really expect 10 examples and are disappointed if
you do not give them. If, however, your title is "101 Ways" and your audience
realizes that you actually intend to cover 101 items, they will be dismayed.
Dont be dismayed. I don t have 101 Ways. I have
one general way and seven basic categories. I have 15-20 ways but with your help and some
discussion we may together generate 101 or more ways to use a labyrinth."
