5 second rule summarized

The rule is simple enough: 54321 and GO!! The full book will be one I'll listen to in the future but this was a great primer. Well narrated as well. Flashbooks almost always delivers.

Just what you need instead of a dragged out book

This summary succinctly captures the essence of the 5 second rule and how to apply it in your life without all the anecdotes. The concept is simple and it works. This is perfect and has already changed my life for the better. Thanks Mel for the original but thank you for this short and sweet version too!

simplist way to deal with procrastion

loved it. simple and easy to remember ways to move forward. i have suffered inertia (my word for procrastion and paralysis by analysis) and anxiety for years, stopping me live into my full potential. too often great solitions just feed into exactly what stops me. highly recommended for people like me!
