The 5 year rule.......

Updated: Apr 14, 2020

I recently saw an interview with Cher where she recounted her mother's genius 5 year rule for life. " If it doesn't matter in 5 years, then it doesn't matter!" I was struck at how clever and insightful this thinking is. By using this simple logic most of our daily worries actually pale into insignificance and our decisions therefore become simple but yet so obvious!

You see, the truth is, many of us allow small worries to keep us awake whilst we endlessly mull over the why's and wherefores' of things that simply will not matter or will have been largely forgotten in 5 years from now.

The irony of this is that whilst we are busy worrying about insignificant things we are merely distracting ourselves from addressing the real issues and more importantly of taking responsibility for things that really matter and will have a big impact on our lives and our future!

What struck me is that we can also use this genius 5 year rule to help us really look at our lives, take stock and make big decisions. We can use it to "take action" by making changes to the things that really matter and will make a significant difference to our long term happiness and wellbeing.

So, I ask you. Where will you be in 5 years?
