The 5 Second Rule

I need to decide whether I want to go there and give a speech or stay there, standing in my safe and defined area.


My turn has come. I have decided.


I didn't go to stage during the school assembly. Now, beating myself at home about it. Five seconds rule uncomfortably works.


What is The 5 Second Rule?


It is 54321-GO!

You count 5 to 1 and you 'just do it' (- Nike)


How does it work?


When you need to make a decision or do something you haven't done it before, you count. Draw your undivided attention to it—5, then 4 then 3.


And our brain is a terrible multi-tasker. Its focus on nervousness and self-consciousness goes away.


Now at the exact lowest fear moment. Just do it.


The rule is simple. Not easy.


And if that would be easy, then anyone could do it.
