Now, the basic reasoning behind this philosophy is that your mind works on momentum and feedback. If you make the start of ANY task difficult for you, it’s going to be tough to get it done, and hence there is a high chance you won’t try it.
If your gym is 30 minutes away from your house, it is bound to happen that you will miss your workouts. It is going to be difficult to eat cleanly if your fridge is full of soft drinks and processed foods.
But, if you just do the simple tasks of getting a gym near your place and keeping no bad food in your fridge; it’s a small win right there.
Once you have enough positive feedback and momentum, it is not going to be difficult to achieve the big tasks!
