🔍 The Power of “Resetting the Room”

James Clear discusses a strategy called “resetting the room” to make future habits easy. The idea is to prepare your environment for the next action, not just clean up after the last one. For example, placing your workout clothes out the night before makes it easier to exercise in the morning.

📊 Start Small, Build Up

Clear advises starting with an incredibly small habit. For instance, instead of aiming for 50 pushups a day, start with 5. This makes it easy enough that you don’t need motivation to do it. Over time, you can gradually increase the habit.
