The 20-Second Rule(The Happiness Advantage)

In a nutshell…

  1. Activation energy is the reason why it’s so hard to go out and do stuff. It’s the barrier between you and the thing you want to do. High activation energy = more energy required to “activate” yourself to do a task.
  2. The 20-Second Rule is a rule of thumb to follow for lowering that barrier. This rule of thumb states that if you decrease how long it takes for you to get started on a task by just 20 seconds, then this already increases the chances that you perform it more consistently.
