One Decision will Change your Life

Generally when you feel lazy or dissatisfied, working towards your goals can be pretty overwhelming, because the more time you spend debating what to do in a specific situation, the more often you feel confused.

The end-result is that you end up not taking any action. The trick is to marry an idea or make a decision within five seconds. If you have the impulse to do something and you don't take any kind of action within five seconds, you've entered the “decision paralysis” zone.

So, if you find yourself feeling so lethargic that even the simplest task seems like a challenge, apply the ‘five-second rule’ to your decision-making. You'll feel more in control and definitely not lazy and bored.
