Yes, I have used something very similar to this method…almost every day when I exercise. And typically I end up doing much more than five! I love the video and thank you so much for the book suggestions.

Just 5 more is a great design for gamifying your day.
Because counting down is a great idea—it opens up the pre-frontal cortex and primes the brain ready for action. The dopamine drip whets our appetites for an end time.
I like it! This is doable.
How simple yet fiendishly clever. Love your vidoes, just create at least 5 more : )
Thank you for this perfectly timed video! I run customer care for a major retailer and Thanksgiving is our peak period. The mountain of email can feel overwhelming. Just 5 more will be our mantra for the next week!
Thanks! So straightforward, simple to get big results.
I love your videos. Thank you!
Well Done Dan
Love your super short emails. Keep up the good work!

I’ve been using ‘Just Do 5 Things’ for years and have taught my kids to use this to break down large tasks. Bedroom a mess? Just pick up 5 things. Don’t want to finish the laundry? Fold 5 items. Dishwasher? Ugh, put away 5 glasses. Works like a charm and I usually finish the task, but if I don’t, like Dan said, at least I did something!
This could also work for giving more:
Give 5 More Hugs
Give 5 More Compliments
Give 5 More Good Deeds
Give 5 More Words of Hope
Give 5 More Minutes of Listening
Love your short videos! Just 5 more is amazing!
