Tip Thursday - Public Speaking

Consider the power contained within the Rule of 3 for your next speech, article or even song.  The Rule of 3 is based on the fact that ideas presented in threes are more interesting, more enjoyable and more memorable.  Three is the smallest number of items you need to create a pattern or a collection. With groupings of 3 we find a sense of completeness and satisfaction.  Enough so that you find trios, triplets and triads throughout western culture, from: the Three Musketeers, to Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, to Location Location Location, to Sex Drugs and Rock 'n Roll.  Examples of the Rule of 3 abound.  Martin Luther King Junior's speech - I Have a Dream - would not be the same without it.  Consider upping the memorability of your next speech by putting this rule to work for you!
