Stop Procrastinating by Using the 5-Second Rule by Mel Robins

I like to think of myself as a very motivated and high energy individual… but that actually has nothing to do with the fact that I feel lazy sometimes. Today I talk about how I overcome those moments when I don’t feel like doing what I should be doing.

Recently, I came across the Five Second Rule by Mel Robbins and it has absolutely changed my life. In those split second moments where I’m trying to figure out how to make the right decision – I now use the five second rule.

Mel Robbins is the first to admin how simple and stupid this whole thing sounds. Count down 5 seconds and then go? And all my procrastination problems are over?

Look — I wouldn’t be posting about this if I didn’t try it myself. Give it a go the next time you’re hesitating to take action for something you know you should be doing.

Here at Unstoppable, we’re all about teaching you how to live a more proactive life. We talk about how becoming unstoppable requires you to do two things: have belief in yourself, and have discipline in your execution. Without discipline, and without actual execution, you will not get anywhere. Try this 5-second rule so that you can truly start moving forward.
