To encourage or discourage behavior, start with a look at the environment. Evaluate the people, processes and tools in the physical space. What can be accessed versus what cannot. Which options can be totally eliminated or stimulus controlled. It’s the conceptual equivalent of childproofing a room.

“If you want to influence anyone, including yourself, I submit that the most efficient approach is to change the environment around the cause. Don’t focus on the cause itself. This will be much easier on your mind. It will require less mental fortitude.” –Jacob Lund Fisker
