I don’t want to bury the lead so understand that this whole post is all about outsourcing my self-control. it is the next logical step in my evolution towards easy productivity, one influenced by my desire to remove as many decisions from my life as possible.
This method of self-management started many years ago when I decided I choosing clothes to wear every day was more taxing than I really wanted to deal with. And Steve Jobs entere(img)d my life with his sartorial minimalism and the the iPhone in 2007, both of which were revelatory for me.
Fewer decisions means more willpower available at any given time. More willpower means more focus. More focus means more useful work.
This post I found on reddit really solidified my feelings on making my phone less distracting. I'm also a fan of the style this person uses.
