1) Take away the barrier and make it easy to access.
I’ll share an example to illustrate. So I wanted to moderate cows milk consumption in my home, personally I drastically reduced mine to the extent that I now have a reaction if I take cows milk. My alternative was tiger nuts milk but I usually struggled to make it, so must times I resort back to cows milk.
But guess what? I changed ONE THING and it made a whole lot of difference. I started to bring the tiger nuts out of the store the night before, wash it and place in a bowl right on my countertop. My blender was also in an easily accessible place. This simple change made it possible for me to make tiger nut’s milk in the morning. My barrier was going into the store each time to bring out the nuts, wash it and have it ready for the blender. That’s how I was able to achieve the result of reducing cows milk consumption in my home by almost 90%. I saw the same thing happen with my air fryer. I started to place it in an easily accessible place in my kitchen and this helped me whip up meals for my family with it in no time.
In Atomic Habits, J.C talked about making it easy for ourselves by removing every hindrance to achieving our goals. So please determine what your goals are, think of what has hindered you so far and start taking steps to make it easy for yourself by removing the barriers.
