If one finds themselves unable to even perform activities of propitiation to Lord Krishna in a regular manner then there is an easier method to approach Him for His devotees and that is with a controlled mind renounce the results of one actions and not desire for rewards for what one does.
This infers not hankering for the results of performing obligatory rites like fasting from all grains on Ekadasi which is the 11th day of the waxing and waning or the performance of occasional rites such as celebrating festival days of the Supreme Lord with pomp and splendour.
The purport is to perform all one's activities without desiring any rewards for the actions. By doing this the mind becomes pure because it is not contaminated by fruitive desires.
This will bestow spiritual knowledge and then bhakti or exclusive loving devotion and Lord Krishna's direct realisation in due course of time.

 In this slokam Lord Krishna shows that for His devotees there are no obstacles and impediments in their way at all by demonstrating the alternatives.
It has been stated in the Saukarayan scripture: What value is the worship of the avyaktam or the impersonal unmanifest for those who propitiate the Supreme Lord Krishna?
 Also the Moksha Dharma also reiterates this theme stating: Rejecting all other gods and deities, those devotees who perform bhakti or exclusive loving devotion to the Supreme Lord Krishna are indeed the most superior.
The reason being that the performance of bhakti is performed exclusively for the satisfaction of the Supreme Lord without any expectation of any rewards because Lord Krishna Himself is their only goal and attainment of Him is all they desire.
