we all learn with repetition..... repetition of topics can be presented in a variety of formats.... there are many ways to say something and it all means the same thing....but it's newly stated.

Hmmm?
If you are talking about marketing, repetition is very important.
Not so much, repetition within the message, but, repetition of the message.

Well, with the diminishing attention spans, I find myself teaching and re-teaching the same things!

So, I think sometimes, repetition is warranted.

I agree with Dan, repetition seems to be the thing of the day. I'm really getting tired of it all. They read it - we talk about it - later on we talk about it again after they said they 'got it'.  Is 3 times the charm?  Think not.

Repetition is critical... not necessarily of the same message but A current and relevant message from you on a consistent basis.  You want your name and contact info to be available when the recipient needs your service.

Repetition is important - it brings harmony, clarity, perfection. I was at an exhibition dedicated to the theme of repetition, especially in architecture. Very eye-opening and insightful. Here is a link to my blog about Repetition, and a link to the Repetition exhibits.

To take the theme to today's overload of delivery systems and attention spans - I find myself doing three times more communications - by text, by email and by phone - the same message. Still trying to figure out efficiencies.

Wayne tells the story of his mother. When she wanted his attention when he was a young boy, she would say "Blah blah blah" and wait for him to say "Huh?" before telling him what she wanted. I've often adopted the same strategy.
