25 - Make It Easy


We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. - Aristotle

Reducing bad habits (and increasing good ones) is as simple as adding or reducing friction. If something is easy, well do it more. If it's difficult, we'll do it less.

We all know what we need to do, but often the mear thought of doing it feels too much. As a result I recommend making it easy. If you need to eat healthier, don't buy in unhealthy foods. When it comes to dinner time cooking healthy will be easier than going to the shops, coming back home then cooking unhealthy. Going to the gym might be difficult, but having weights in your house makes that task a lot easier. We're lazy, use this to your advantage by making the tasks you want to do easier than the ones you don't want to do. How can you make what you want to do easier?
