QuickBites: How to Incorporate the Rule of 3 Into Your Talks

Whether it's in communications, art, or even nature, 3s surround us. It's commonly known as the rule of 3, and it has been used throughout recorded history.

I don’t know about you, but if I were asked to list the various ways the body is involved in public speaking, I would include stance, movement, gestures, heart rate, and even sweating.
