Focus On Showing Up With The Two- Minute Rule; Make Your Desired Behavior Easy/Small to Do More Than You Originally Envisioned

Atomic Habits’ author James Clear shares the two- minute rule: “When you start a new habit, it should take less than two minutes to do.” For example, instead of setting out to read 20 minutes every day, set out to read 1 page. The reason: once you find the activation energy to start, you’ll be likely to stay on the path and do more than 1 page. The takeaway from Clear: first, standardize the beginning of your desired behavior with the two-minute rule—and then, you can optimize for performance.
