Alignment between the many dispirate aspects of your life can bring balance.
The idea of making something "frictionless", means to remove those things that are causing friction, a contrast or contradiction.
When things are aligned they "line up" and flow in one direction. Life isn't like that (at least not one I'm familiar with) because it's full of many things, all going in their own direction.
So, what do we do?
Live with friction, sure, that's always a possibility.
Or, sit down, do some big picture thinking and figure out what one big picture of what you want out of life might look like.
