Before we go further, let’s draw the line. Somethings your love for those you will manage something or at-least you will feel the longing. The tasks we are discussing here are for those of us who don’t like exercising or reading or writing or maybe spending time on meditation 🧘♂️ . We like the idea of us doing it but are not doing it.
See the trend? Let’s do some basic maths. 1 Pushup daily * 365 Days. 1 page * 365 days. 5 lines * 365. Somedays we can even get lucky and pull twice of that and on some days we might feel like doing it three times. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves but what about five times. Maybe? Somedays!
Get up-> Search for the specs-> Do one Pushup -> Read one Page ->Do the Scroll of doom on phone
The prize at the end keeps us motivated to go with the flow. Brain is excited to reach the other side and salvage its prize. Suddenly, when the prize and task association is formed we will start looking forward to it.
We stack books with full intent to read them all, but then time escapes us while our To Be Read pile grows ever taller. Luckily, there are ways we can make time for reading.
Reading for pure enjoyment has been on a sad decline for a while now, with reports saying 24% of Americans haven’t read at all for pleasure this last year.
Life gets busy; books don’t get prioritized. Pew Research Center states the average American is still likely to read around 12 books a year.
But with over a million books being published each year, the undeniable fact is: we need to find more time to read.
Friction is another strong deterrent, it is one of the strongest forces in the universe. Make it easy for you to pick a book. Take the book with you in your bag, get a book on phone. Keep books next to you. Keep the book on bed table. It should be always accessible.
