Practice the Rule of Five

Practice the Rule of 5.

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. – Robert Collier – Best selling author and publisher of the Secret of the Ages.    

The author of Chicken Soup for the Soul namely Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield in the process of publishing their book sought the advice of Ron Scolastico who told them „If you would go every day to a very large tree and take five swings at it with a very sharp axe, eventually, no matter how large the tree, it would have to come down.“ It is a very simple and true formula.

From there these two authors evolved and developed a principle which they called the RULE OF FIVE. This literally means that every day, if one does five specific things these activities will move once goal towards logical completion. 

The author has elaborated by saying what might you accomplish if you were to do a little bit-five things-every day for the next 40 years toward the accomplishment of your goal. If you wrote 5 pages a day that would be 73,000 pages of text-the equivalent of 243 books of 300 pages each. If you save $5 a day, that would be $73,000, enough for four round-the-world trips! If you invested $5 a day, with compound interest at only 6% a year, at the end of 40 years, you’d have amassed a small fortune of around $3, 05,000. 

How powerful the Rule of five is. One needs to practice the principle in order to understand how powerful and effective it is. The Human Resource Specialist in their quest to get positive results for their organization need to practice this principle consciously or unconsciously while discharging their functions. 

The principle by itself will not give results but it is how you understand, interpret, analyze and put it into action believing it will work. This principle will give definite results if small effort by the department of HR is practiced and sustained day in and day out over the years. For example: Every one of us understands that the human resource is an asset and with experienced people around every organization is bound to make profit. But it is not often true. Many organizations with professional competence and expertise face difficulties in handling people. It is always the people problem which gets the organization into difficulties more than the other problems in the form of financial crunch, operational inefficiency, under utilization of resources etc.   

The people in the organization have to be taken care of. I fully endorse and agree that monetary and non monetary incentives play a very important role in motivating the employees to contribute to productivity. I also agree that the environment, the practices, processes, the methods and the strategies play a definite role in bringing the organization to the top. With those practices the department / personnel’s of HR can inculcate / build the Rule of 5. It will definitely do a great of good for the HR and the organization as a whole. 

We take care of all the things which belong to the company like car, air conditioner, and computer etc and if they don’t function we get it repaired, rectified and bring it back to its normal working condition. Why not bring back the people who have been struggling to give the best results by applying the PRINCIPLE OF 5?
