How We Can Start Automating
Becoming an automator really is a mindset and a lifestyle. The word automation means to set up systems so that things can be done without human control.
We all have repetitive tasks that we can outsource to other people. We can use software systems to free up our headspace and out time.
Catherine discovered in her early twenties that she was lacking motivation and will power to get up. By setting up a simple system with a loud alarm clock, she discovered that she could use that tool and suddenly set herself up for success.
She even applied this principle to eating healthier; instead of having waffles and cinnamon rolls in the house, she would only have egg whites.
All automation can be simplified to one basic question:
How can I avoid making the same mistake twice?
Automation Is More Than Apps
There is more to a system than just an app; barriers are important. The elimination of other possibilities is essential too. When you combine human behavior with essentially computer science coding, right, you’re actually able to program your brain.
If we look at the basics of coding, it’s zeros and ones. A computer will do exactly what you tell it to do.
So when you’re creating your routines, it is important to write out what you want to do as if you are a computer. Break it down, and you literally program your mind.
With the example of using an alarm clock, she broke it down like this:
- Open your eyes
- Take two deep breaths
- Sit up
- Get out of your bed
- Leave your room and close the door so you can’t go back in there
- Walk to the alarm clock
- Turn it off
- Go into the bathroom
- Close the door and shower.
When you eliminate other options, you also get your brain into a regimented routine.
