“124th story”

First published: Jan.02.2020

There was a seminar regarding humanitarian. A very famous professor was supposed to give a speech, and many people attended the conference.


When people walked in one by one, they received a balloon. The welcomers asked the crowd to write their names on their balloon and leave it in a room beside the salon and then take a seat and wait for the professor’s speech.

The professor came to the podium and asked the audience: “Please, go to the room with the balloons and find your balloon and bring it back to the seminar. You only have five minutes.”


The crowd went crazy; everyone ran into the smaller room with hundreds of balloons and tried so hard to find their balloon in such a short time. People pushed each other; some fell, some balloons burst; It was madness.


The short five minutes passed, and the crowd came back to the conference room empty-handed; Not even one person found the balloon with their name on it.


The professor said: “Please, go back to the room of balloons, but this time when you pick up a balloon, call the person’s name and give it to them. You have five minutes.”

The crowd went to the room again and came back after five minutes with their balloons even the burst ones.


The professor said: “There is no need for any speech today. This act is our daily life. We could easily help each other and succeed or make chaos. We are in this world together, why not help each other when we know this way we will reach our goals easy and faster.”

  3. This exercise is the reverse of one I remember when I was on a course (counselling skills, or was it mentoring? Whichever) but there the object was NOT to help. I found it impossible, and had to squash that part of me to complete the course.

  7. It is a pity that people are so rarely reminded of helping others. Such an example reaches the mind faster than words.
    Can I put this example on my blog?

  22. I tried that buddy technique as a n icebreaker to begin my college classes. It truly works when you think about someone other than yourself for a change.
