The Four Second Rule...

Step one when responding to a code blue is to take your own pulse, and let the adrenaline pass.

Then there is the 40,000,000 second rule before you start arguing with your wife....ie, think that over REALLY good before you open your mouth.

for me four seconds leads to four minutes witch leads to fours, and four days, four months four years then nothing, just a total blank.

My version of this is to counter my natural assumption that whatever the problem is it was someone else's fault with the sure knowledge a split second later that it was probably MY fault, and I should be calm and polite about it.

Depends on the food, depends on the floor!

Four seconds is likely to be too long, if there's smoke involved.

So, the 4 second rule has nothing to do with dropping food on the kitchen floor?

It all depends on which discussion you're paying attention to.

Consider spending (waiting) four seconds to think (about an approach,) contemplate (the right move or answer,) or address (your concerns and) the situation before you respond. It may seem like a longtime, but that four second pause will save you hours (or years) of regret, disappointment, or the lost opportunity to do it right the first time around!

What say you?
That is not just for the studio, it is in life.
