The importance of automation

January 1, 0001

If something is to be done on a daily basis, and it is possible to automate it, do it.Decision fatigue is a very real thing.

The fewer decisions you have to make, the less likely it is you will reach “decision fatigue” before something really important needs to be decided.

Automating decisions doesn’t have to be done electronically.

There are many ways you can automate daily decisions–for example, a master list of meals, a close organized where you simply pick the next thing in line to wear (I do that), a schedule of regular, routine events done every day.

This doesn’t mean taking “choice” out of the day.

It simply means saving as much energy and brain power as possible for the choices that truly matter.

This improves the likelihood that you will act.

You can change the world - or at least a bit of the world around you - so put yourself in the best possible position to actually do something that changes the world.
