Saying 3 things

In all forms of public speaking and presentations, I’m a big fan of boiling everything you have to say down to 3 things. There are 3 advantages (of course) to doing so –

1. People don’t remember more than 3 things anyway. (Moreover, if the 3 things seem disconnected, the chances are high that your audience will remember just one.)

2. You save yourself from rambling while also harnessing a powerful principle – structure makes you look smarter.

3. Yes, there might be many more important things to add. But, by picking 3 of the most important factors, you’ve likely boiled it all down to the essence. And, for the most part, the essence is all your listeners need.

Like all wonderful simple ideas, this is incredibly powerful when executed consistently.
