“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.”

–Nelson Mandela

  2. O as Obstacles
  3. S as Stakes

  1. Who wants what?: Desire
  2. Why now?: Obstacles
  3. What will happen if they don’t get it?: Stakes
