Stop Procrastinating with the Five-Second Rule
The "five-second rule" is a mental tactic conceived of by attorney and author Mel Robbins. Its purpose is to stop procrastination in its tracks and help you accomplish more. The science of the approach is sound. Here are the steps: When you become aware of a need to take some action, count down "5-4-3-2-1" and immediately, physically, move to action before the desire to procrastinate takes hold. Don’t wait for an excuse to delay action. The left side of the brain controls logic, direction, and math. This technique allows this side of your brain to take control before the right side jumps in to undermine you. Learn more: "The 5-Second Rule" by Mel Robbins.
