5 minutes more Tip

When you are about to abandon a task because you’ve had enough or feel you aren’t getting any where or are just bored then try applying the 5 minute Rule. Say to yourself I will stick at it for just 5 minutes more and then I can give up or take a break.

At the worst you get 5 minutes work done and at the best you will have found a second wind, got focused and become productive.

Remember the other 5 minute rule that we often want to give up a task 5 minutes after we started, 5 minutes into writing an essay or starting a run that’s the danger time before we’ve warmed to the task before we see any progress, you can use the five-minute rule to help you through this discouraging phase
