On May 6th 2018 Feliks Zemdegs completed a Rubik’s Cube in less than five seconds (4:22!) setting a world record that no one could beat.
That’s faster than the time it took you to read the last sentence.
Then along came Yusheng Du who did it in 3:47!
Less than four seconds.
What can you do in less than four seconds?
Possibly not a Rubik’s Cube, but there are lots of things that take less than four seconds and can make a positive difference.
Here are a few to get you started:
Apologise – I mean properly say you’re sorry
Give a compliment
Change your mind – I love this one.
Pick up a piece of rubbish.
Smile – do it for four.
Let someone out in front of you.
Chew your mouthful a little longer.
Leave a few kind words (more than just a ‘like’) on a social media post.
I’d like to know your thoughts on positive things you can do that take less than four seconds.
Please leave your ideas below.
Here’s the video of Yusheng Du breaking the Rubik’s Cube world record.
Tell yourself that you are a decent person and that you accept yourself completely.
Blow a kiss
Give someone a hug.
Stroke your dog/cat.
A hug and a kiss takes less than four seconds.
Michael, You’ve cracked it. Great ideas. I shall work my way through those. Hopefully other people will feel better for it and I am sure I will too.
Put the kettle on.
Pat yourself/someone else on the shoulder & tell them it’s all going to be OK
Smash a Rubin cube!
Give something to a homeless person each time you pass by them.
Ring a family member which you haven’t done for a while and tell them you were thinking of them.
Say ‘No’ to gossip.
‘Thank you’ for kindness.
Smile at a stranger.
Swing your legs out of bed.
Quick hug with 3 year old grandchild before her attention is grabbed by something else!
