Default Counter surfing

As I've mentioned, Zeus is still adjusting to a house with rules. One of his worst habits is jumping up on the counter, (and the couch, and chewing up headphones which I need to remember to leave out of his reach but that is a separate issue) So I try and leave the counter as clear as I can to discourage him from doing it. I'm told that eventually when he stops being rewarded by finding things to chew on and eat he will stop doing this. Thing is, about how long a process is this? Should I just keep doing what I'm doing or are there things to help the process along? I do have some of the keep off spray but it is horrible, I don't really want it on the counters. I could keep him away from the counters if I really needed to, but eventually would like it to not be an issue.
