Part 3. Courage Changes Your Behavior

Nothing will work unless you do.” -Maya Angelou

The 5 Second Rule is very helpful in the areas of health, productivity, and procrastination. All diets, exercise programs, workout classes, yoga, and other things that have a positive impact on our health have in common that we HAVE TO DO them. Although we feel that it won’t be easy, the 5 Second Rule can help us start acting.

When you want to increase productivity, the key word is focus. We have to manage distractions to focus on what’s truly important. We are most productive in the first two to three hours of the day, so it is good to plan to do the most important tasks in the morning.

Many people think that procrastination is the result of avoiding work. The truth is that it is caused by stress and the fact that we want to feel good right now. If we cope with stress by knowing the reason for procrastination, we can eliminate it.
