  1. Daniel,

    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.

    Nice Dan!

  4. Michael says:

    I like it! This is doable.

  5. Valter Ezerins says:

    How simple yet fiendishly clever. Love your vidoes, just create at least 5 more : )

  6. Kristi says:

    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!

  7. Brooke says:

    Thanks! So straightforward, simple to get big results.
    I love your videos. Thank you!

    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
