3 in 3
Three has always been a magic number in both writing and speaking. When speaking to a live audience, three key points are not too much information, which increases the rate of retention, but it’s also not too little information so you don’t feel like something was left out either.
When writing, especially for children (another passion of mine), repeating things three times is an unwritten rule and makes stories more magical and memorable. Think back to The Little Engine That Could … “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can” or any other favorite childhood story where the main character tries and tries and tries one last time before reaching their final goal or destination.
And while the written word is still very powerful, hearing someone speak can be just as impactful. So in addition to my blog, I’ll be sharing 3 in 3 via video.
