5 Second Rule, Mel Robbins

The moment you have an instinct to act on a goal, you must count down 5-4-3-2-1 and physically move or your brain will stop you.

When a productive intention comes to mind, act on it in less than five seconds or let it go forever.

“Productive intentions” are every action and decision that can bring positive results in your life. For instance, getting enough sleep is productive, and so is the decision to eat a salad instead of lasagna at lunch.

You have the power to control your thoughts & actions.

Your thoughts do not have the power to control you.

You can use the Rule and its countdown method to break any bad habit, interrupt self-doubt and negative self-talk, and push yourself to take the actions that will change your life.

Exercise and health comes down to one simple rule – you don’t have to feel like it. You just have to do it.

Your good intentions are worthless if you don’t take action.

  • [Basis was to take action! Quick & prompt action on productive intentions.]
  • [Announcements for Polar Plunge happening tomorrow 03/11/23, for Timberline Trail hike happening in July/August & for Brew Series 5K Beer Run next Saturday 03/18 at Oregon City Brewery.]
