Similar to Nike's tagline "Just Do It!" which refers to what you need to do, the 5-second rule tells you how to do it. By using the word "just," Nike acknowledges that we all struggle with pushing ourselves to be better and that we are not alone in this struggle. It acknowledges that we all need a push sometimes to get started, and by using the 5-second rule Meg Robbins helps give you that push!
