Achieve Goals Faster: The Rule Of Five

  • While starting out to accomplish a goal, we feel overwhelmed with the abundance of advice and information, creating an analysis paralysis.
  • Inaction and decision fatigue ensues, as we lose track of where to begin.
  • The Rule Of Five is a remedy to this problem. It is a commitment to take five daily actions (also called systems) to move quickly towards one’s goal.

MORE IDEAS FROM The Rule of Five: How to Achieve Your Goals Faster | Sam Thomas Davies

Success is inevitable if a system is followed daily. It is the sum of small efforts, repeated every day.

One can start small, by learning five new words every day in a language we want to master or even writing five sentences in your journal. Keep it regular, and see the magic of compounding.

Taking five mandatory actions, however small, on a regular basis makes for a routine that has nowhere else to go but eventual success, provided the action is a system practised daily, just like saving up 5 dollars every day no matter what.

Example: Calling up five clients every day. Creating five meetings or virtual appointments, writing five pages of your book, calling and following up with five recruiters to find you a job.

The daffodil principle is taught as a great principle of celebration where we are taught to move towards our goals one step at a time even if we're taking baby steps to reach them. It teaches the importance of being patient and how it correlates to why extraordinary successes happen:

  1. Ordinary actions are done consistently
  2. Regular feedback is provided where you're self-aware of what works and what doesn't and with this, you improve the former to maximize possible outcomes.

Book Clubs

A book club is a reading group who read and talk about books based on a topic or an agreed-upon reading list.

The book club can meet monthly. That will give members enough time to read the book, think about key ideas, and prepare for the meeting.
