What is the 5 Second Rule?
Do you, like me, sometimes struggle to get out of bed? Or do you find that you are making to-do lists that are not getting completed. Do you sometimes feel defeated and wonder what’s wrong with you? Do you sometimes wonder why all your dreams and plans go up in smoke? I know, I do.
Mel Robbins says she felt the same. So here’s what she found:
- Knowing what to do will never be enough.
- Knowing why you need to do it will never be enough.
If you don’t start doing the things you don’t feel like doing, you will wake up one year from today and be in exactly the same place.Mel Robbins
So here’s the one-liner definition of the Rule:
If you have an impulse to act on a goal, you must physically move within 5 seconds or your brain will kill the idea.
I’ve just purchased Mel’s book . And am looking forward to learning and putting this rule into practice.
Our actions and decisions today will shape the way we will be living in the future.
