It's been said that good things come in 3's. That's true with effective communication.
According to Alan Alda (Captain "Hawkeye" Pierce on the M*A*S*H television show), he believes in The Three Rules of Three when talking with another person or presenting to a group.
The Three Rules of Three are:
1. Communicate no more than three items or topics.
2. If a topic is difficult to understand, say it three different ways.
3. If an idea is complicated, say it three different times throughout your talk.
