The 3 Second Rule


What was your 1st decision this morning?

If like most its one of the most important decisions of every morning GET OUT THE BED or hit the snooze button.

I encounter this dreaded moment every morning when I try to trick myself into going on my daily jog. After months of this routine I thought that at some point I would get used to wanting to get up and actually look forward to pounding the pavement. I’ve now found which actually prompted this post that its like every single thing in life as an adult seems to be “YOU WILL NEVER FEEL LIKE IT”.

Here is a list of the most common things people never feel like doing:

  • Getting up in the morning
  • Paying Bills
  • Exercising
  • Reading
  • Improving your situation
  • Going to work

I could go on and on about this but it all boils down to what scientist define as ACTIVATION ENERGY which is the energy required to do all of these activities mentioned above. The decision or thought between when you think about an action and whether you decide to act on it is what I refer to the 3 second rule. It’s the moment at the party when someone asks you to come up and dance and you think hey I will. Then your inner voice decides to sit down and say hey their crazy I’m not doing that. At that moment its the activation energy that needs to kick in and boom your dancing. Its also the time your glad you actually got up and danced the entire night away. I run into so many people who ask me Jamarc how do you do all the stuff you do? I say I’ve learned to conquer to 3 seconds between indecision and decision.

When I wake up in the morning and in fighting with myself,  I try my hardest to remember the 3 seconds it takes to make a decision to jog that I’ve done so many times before, but as soon as my feet hit the floor, i start to stretch, and walk out the door thats the beginning of bliss and me putting my day together.

This same 3 seconds is the difference between being what you are and what you actually want to be. Because remember “YOU WILL NEVER FEEL LIKE IT”.
