What is Your Rule of 5?

A lifetime of difference is made in daily deposits of intentionality.

No one exemplifies this principle more than John Maxwell. In fact, he has what he calls a “Rule of 5.”

These are his daily deposits of intentionality:  Every day, he reads. Every day, he files. Every day, he thinks. Every day, he asks questions. And every day, he writes.

These are small steps, the kind many would consider insignificant.

“What difference would that make?” you may wonder. Do a search on Amazon for John Maxwell books and you’ll see what a difference it makes!

Now, here’s the good news: John’s simple formula for success can work for anyone or any company.

You only need to determine your five things.

  1. Every day I/we _________________________.
  2. Every day I/we _________________________.
  3. Every day I/we _________________________.
  4. Every day I/we _________________________.
  5. Every day I/we _________________________.

Then do them consistently every day.

It is genius in its simplicity, and it works.

Take the first step for yourself or with your team. Write down the five verbs on that line that, done daily, will help you make a significant difference.

This one thing has the potential to change your life and the lives of others in ways you may never have imagined.
