In Atomic Habits author James Clear states:

The greater the obstacle—that is, the more difficult the habit—the more friction there is between you and your desired end state. This is why it is crucial to make your habits so easy that you’ll do them even when you don’t feel like it. If you can make your good habits more convenient, you’ll be more likely to follow through on them.

Reducing friction is a concept I’m very familiar in my work as a designer, but for some reason it’s something that I forget in my day to day life. So I’m trying a little experiment with my blogging. I’m going to test a few different ways of posting and then whichever has the least friction thus enabling me to post more regularly then that’s what I’m going to go with.
