PREVIEW: The 5 Second Rule: Transform Your Life, Work, and Confidence with Everyday Courage by Mel Robbins is a self-help book based on a simple psychological tool that the author developed to motivate herself. Using a technique that involves counting down backwards from five to one, she gave herself the extra push she needed to complete dreaded tasks, become more productive, and live a more fulfilling life. She hopes that readers will follow in her footsteps.
Robbins’ own journey with the 5 second rule began in 2009, a time in her life when it seemed like everything was wrong. Every aspect of her life was troubled in some way. Her relationship with her husband was fraught, her career was flagging, and her self-esteem was in the dumps. She was drinking too much, too often. She was so depressed that she had trouble getting out of bed in the morning, which inevitably started the day off on the wrong foot. She found herself pressing the snooze button again and again, which often had consequences for her children, who were late for school. On top of all that, her husband’s business was failing and the family was under financial stress. Robbins was desperate to make a change, but she didn’t know what to do.
