There’s something magical about the number 3.


Our minds find comfort, balance, and completeness when things happen in groups of threes.


As an example, look at that last sentence above. Notice the three details: comfort, balance & completeness. How would the sentence be different if it said "Our minds find comfort, balance, completeness, and happiness when things happen in threes"?


Threes create a pattern that research has found is easier for the brain to process and remember.


Think, for a moment, of how you notice instances of three in the world:

  • Morning, noon & night

  • Life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness
