生きる

Following my recent post on self-directed learning, today I read a comment on lesswrong that I think brings up another very meaningful tool in improving your productivity.

The author recommends reducing transaction costs for habits of learning and productivity that you want to reinforce, while increasing transaction costs on habits which you want to stop. This is a brilliant idea, and actually reminds me of the strategy which I used to learn the guitar when I was younger. By carrying around my guitar while at home; placing the guitar in places where I did other leisure activities; and generally making sure that it was always in hand, it often caused me to spend hours more practicing than I would have otherwise. Additionally it removed ‘dead areas’ of time in which I wasn’t being engaged.
