55- Rules over decisions

Making decisions takes effort. We need to weigh out the pros and cons, evaluate how those align with our feelings, and react to that information.

Suppose I am deciding whether or not I want to go for a run today. I’ll look outside at the weather, see how much work I have on the table, evaluate how much energy I have, wonder how sweaty I want to get.

Conversely, if I had a rule to run every day, I would just put on my running shoes, head outside, and run.

If you want to get something done, make it a rule. Don’t give yourself the option to fail.
