Create Less Friction
01 Feb 2021
Recently, after getting the HomePod Mini, I have been listening to a lot more music. My earlier Bluetooth speaker would need charging, and I had to manually turn it on before listening -- sometimes I wouldn't bother. Today, I woke up and said: "Hey Siri, play the lazy morning playlist".
It's because of less friction to get things going.
Some other areas where we can try to keep less friction are:
- Keep your daily journal on your bedside or the desk. If you use an app like DayOne, make sure it's open when you restart your computer.
- Keep your gym clothes, sneakers and socks out the night before.
- Keep your book/ kindle on your bedside so you can read for 15 minutes before going to bed.
- Keep your code editor open so you can get back to coding quickly. As a tip, make sure you have the next steps on what you are working on laid out in a text editor, so you don't need to think about where you left off.
