Procrastination is the thief of time! That’s why top performers beat procrastination every time by applying the 5-minutes rule.
The 5-minute rule is a cognitive behavioral therapy technique for procrastination in which you set a goal of doing whatever it is you would otherwise avoid, but only do it for five minutes. If after five minutes it’s so horrible that you have to stop, you are free to do so.
Most of the time, five minutes into the activity you will find out that this dreaded task is not that bad after all.
