Mel Robbins does a beautiful job of breaking down how simple and effective the 5-second window is for your daily life. 

The Secret to Self-Motivation: 

The power and science behind making 5-second decisions is like pulling the emergency break or putting yourself on autopilot. Everything you have learned in your life such as situational intelligence; when it tells you to do something, you only have 5-seconds to move before your mind talks you out of it. Your mind is designed to do three things. Your mind regulates your body to keep you alive, catalogs your brain when you sleep so we have memories, and it protects you by magnifying risks. For any risky situation or conversation, your mind protects you from getting hurt. Most of us know what we need to do to change things for the better, however, we spend all our time/energy talking ourselves out of it! At the end of the day, true change in your life comes in 5-second windows. That moment where you know you need to do something that is slightly uncomfortable, your doubt, excuses and hesitations crank up and stop you from doing it. 


Online Students: Synchronous Virtual Courses in Term 4 2023!

You take online courses because of the flexibility it offers you. But sometimes, depending on the course, you also want to speak with your instructor — in real life – when the class is meeting. We get it. We heard you. Beginning in Term 4 (January 9, 2023), the University is piloting several synchronous courses for students.
Below is the list of courses to be offered synchronously. There are 11 undergraduate and two graduate courses available.
