    It fills in nicely with this quote:

    Know the true value of time; snatch, seize,
    and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness; no laziness;
    no procrastination; never put off till
    tomorrow what you can do today. Lord Chesterfield

    The 3 seconds rule was first coined by a professional pick up artist called Mystery. Hesitation is the friend of self doubt, hesitate and you start a stream of negative thoughts. The 3 second rule means that as soon as you see a girl you like, you should approach her. It means that if you're at a bar waiting to get served and a sexy girl walks up to the space beside you, smile and say something.

    Ideally you should have a few openers that you can use to initiate a conversation, but if you don't, approach anyway. The 3 seconds rule means that you're going to be approaching a lot of girls, even if you're a bumbling idiot eventually you'll find a girl who'll be more than happy to strike up a conversation. Remember the best chat up line in the world is to smile and say hello.

    Don't wait for eye contact or any other form of 'come on', chances are she hasn't seen you yet. Approaching a girl shows her a number of things about yourself.

    You're available.
    You're confident.
    You're spontaneous.
    You're entertaining (because you're smiling, right ?)
    The rule does not apply to all occasions, there may be physical constraints or you may already be chatting to someone. The easy check is to as yourself am I procrastinating if you are, approach. There?s an old marketing rule that goes something like this.

    Ask a thousand girls to dance and at least one will say yes.

    I remember walking with my father when I was a child and he would always tip his hat to any ladies that walked by. It's a gentlemanly thing to do. Approaching ladies, smiling and delivering you're witty chat up line or well thought out compliment, is the modern equivalent of tipping your hat.

    I have to say for me.. the three second rule doesn't apply in the traditional sense. I like to make some form of contact within 3 seconds, but not with the approach. I prefer to establish some sort of connection - usually it is just a knowing look or some other non-verbal communication. Then, once things are 'warmed up', I can approach easily.

    Try it out...
