A walk through the Adler*

A recent walk along the three levels of the Adler Planetarium guided me through the exhibits to the theaters with ease. Reminding me of the graceful, yet powerful of use of THREEHow do we consciously or unconsciously incorporate this into our work?

The use of three segments or divisions can be used to construct a presentation, write the speech or develop visuals. Artists and architects have used “3” for centuries. It’s simple, keeps us focused; more importantly, our audience focused.

Note the three parts of this stalwart advise for speech:

  1. Tell ’em what you’re going to tell ’em.
  2. Tell ’em.
  3. Tell ’em what you told ’em.
