Show me a plan purely based on willpower, and I’ll show you a plan that is likely to fail.
Wanting something to happen is critical, but a plan based on it alone is bound to break.
Just look at the success rate of the average diet. Despite diet-related illnesses being the leading causes of death and diet having a huge impact on how we look, most diets fail.
Willpower is a great book that shares cutting-edge research on self-control.
One of the biggest findings is that willpower is like a muscle. It is finite, but improvable through practice.
What does this mean?
- Use your willpower wisely on what’s most important to you.
- Create action plans that use as little willpower as possible.
- Replenish your willpower throughout the day or you will be irritable with your loved ones and have little energy to do anything.
- Be careful of being overambitious on what you can actually do. It’s not just about the number of hours in the day. It’s about your energy during those hours.
