Reduce Friction

It's not the work which kills people, it's the worry. It's not the revolution that destroys machinery it's the friction.
Henry Ward Beecher

One perspective to help live a better life is to be attentive to friction.

What are those things that annoy, frustrate, and slow you down?

Note what those are and spend the time to remove them. When friction is removed it allows us to get through the day without being slowed down. Some friction that is removed doesn’t make much of a difference, other friction that is removed frees us up resulting in massive changes.

Friction could be the difference between running on the treadmill and not running. Running on the treadmill increases our energy which allows us to do more and to do it with more energy. The trick is that we don’t always know what the friction is stopping us from doing.

Noticing the frictions and removing them on an ongoing basis maximizes our chances of getting rid of the frictions that are holding us back.
