Productivity #6- The 5 Minute Rule


download (1)


To wrap up this blog series on productivity, we end with my favorite and personal key to productivity success- the 5 minute rule. I heard about this for the first time at the IEA conference in Denver last year, and it is simply this: if it takes you 5 minutes or less to complete, do it right away. Truly, that’s it!

Does it require two paragraphs to send that email? 5 minute rule. Is that phone call just to confirm or reschedule an appointment? 5 minute rule. Do you just have to pay that bill online? 5 minute rule.

Genius isn’t it? This tip is especially useful for Enneagram styles 4, 5 and 9 as they can have trouble getting started on a task. I’d love to hear how you implement this and whether it works for you!
