The 24 Hour Rule


Major throwback moment here.

Way back to the 70’s.

Have you ever heard the song "Easy" by The Commodores?

The vibe in that song perfectly captures the feeling of being — Easy like Sunday morning.

There can be a ton of variables when you're looking at a new piece of technology for your business.

And it can all get pretty overwhelming pretty fast. 

When selecting a new piece of technology it's important to not get caught up in the moment.

Making a rash decision just to get through a moment is not always the best way to move forward.

With that said, a friend of mine has a personal rule that he uses.

l rule that I dubbed.


The 24 Hour Rule basically works like so…

Before making a key decision, anyone involved in the decision can invoke the 24 Hour Rule.

When invoked, no decision will be made for at least 24 hours.

This gives everyone involved some time to reflect and assess.

Over the years I've continued to invoke the rule whenever necessary.

Sometimes I come back and go with the decision discussed.

Other times I choose a different path.

And sometimes, I may decide to do nothing at all.

Yep, it's true.

I pass.


It's important to not get caught up in the moment.

And that’s because…

It’s typically in the moment—when we make that bad decision.

So next time you’re in the moment.

And things feel a little uneasy in your gut.

And perhaps your spidey senses are going off.

Step back, take a breath.

Invoke The 24 Hour Rule.

And be Easy like Sunday morning.
