Environment is the invisible hand that shapes human behavior. We tend to believe our habits are a product of our motivation, talent, and effort. Certainly, these qualities matter. But the surprising thing is, especially over a long time period, your personal characteristics tend to get overpowered by your environment. Your environment determines if you will be motivated or not, it also determines if you will have the will-power to overcome that challenge or not. So it is your responsibility to ensure that your environment makes it easy to live that great life that your desire.You want to read more, then reduce the level of distraction from the TV, and your phone and then place your book in places that you can easily pick it and read.You want to exercise more, then put your workout clothes and shoes right were you will always see it every time you work in and of the room. When you learn to prime your environment for success what you are simply doing is making it easier to the do the right thing and the friction to do less important things becomes more difficult.
