A short post for a bottle of beer in the fridge
There are days when not opening the beer in the fridge is somewhat challenging.
Self-restraint, I want to believe, helps to strengthen our will power.
Perhaps it would be easier to refrain from putting the bottle on the fridge in the first place. Or even better, not getting it from the store!
I'm sure it is easier not buying a beer in the store than not taking it from the fridge after dinner is served. That's a path of less resistance.
If we extrapolate this reasoning, maybe it would be easier to simply say: “I don't drink beer”. So, I don't even need to avoid the aisle with the drinks at the grocery store, there is nothing there to avoid! I simply don't drink that.
If we generalize this idea, perhaps there are other aspects of life where the same strategy might work.
