Willpower Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength PDF

One of the world's most esteemed and influential psychologists Roy F Baumeister teams with New York Times science writer John Tierney to reveal the secrets of self control and how to master it In Willpower the pioneering researcher Roy F Baumeister collaborates with renowned New York Times science writer John Tierney to revolutionize our understanding of the most coveted human virtue self controlIn what became one of the most cited papers in social science literature Baumeister discovered that willpower actually operates like a muscle it can be strengthened with practice and fatigued by overuse Willpower is fueled by glucose and it can be bolstered simply by replenishing the brain's store of fuel That's why eating and sleeping and especially failing to do either of those have such dramatic effects on self control and why dieters have such a hard time resisting temptationBaumeister's latest research shows that we typically spend four hours every day resisting temptation No wonder people around the world rank a lack of self control as their biggest weakness Willpower looks to the lives of entrepreneurs parents entertainers and artists including David Blaine Eric Clapton and others who have flourished by improving their self controlThe lessons from their stories and psychologists' experiments can help anyone You learn not only how to build willpower but also how to conserve it for crucial moments by setting the right goals and using the best new techniques for monitoring your progress Once you master these techniques and establish the right habits willpower gets easier you'll need less conscious mental energy to avoid temptation That's neither magic nor empty self help sloganeering but rather a solid path to a better lifeCombining the best of modern social science with practical wisdom Baumeister and Tierney here share the definitive compendium of modern lessons in willpower As our society has moved away from the virtues of thrift and self denial it often feels helpless because we face temptations than ever But we also have knowledge and better tools for taking control of our lives However we define happiness a close knit family a satisfying career financial security we won't reach it without mastering self control

    Over the summer I read an article about decision fatigue in The New York Times easily one of the most illuminating sciencebehavior related articles I'd ever read turned out that my inability to refuse that piece of chocolate the last slice of pizza one beer etc didn't mean I had no willpower as I'd always thought After reading the article it was clear that my willpower and related glucose supply was consumed by waking up pretty early to write working as well as I possibly can at work instead of giving into temptation to slack off most of the day reading books often while walking that require a bit of attention working on overwritten goodreads reviews exercising relatively semi regularly maintaining sort of a semblance of order at home emotionally overinvolving myself with the Sixers Eagles and Phils and still conserving a bit of energy to play nice with wifey and the cat And so although I can resist a sometimes real strong urge to sleep an extra hour or stop after two miles running etc I can't possibly resist the bowl of chocolates on my boss's desk an invitation to enjoy a goblet of fancy ale andor the inclination to overwrite long goodreads reviews or order a book that seems real good So I ordered the related long form hard cover and recently found myself continually exerting willpower to keep myself from reading aloud to the wifey illuminating passages in a book that offers accessible summaries of scientific studies a bit of self helpishness and profilesinterviews of famous related cases Amanda Palmer Eric Clapton David Blaine Mary Karr Drew Carey Henry Morton Stanley in such a way that like a good religion a universalizing explanation filter comes down over the eyes and lets you see pretty much everything afresh Ordinarily I wouldn't trust this sort of thing but I didn't feel like the book sacrificed complexity for the sake of superficial simplification But then again I was pretty tired as I read a lot of this so maybe my glucose levels were low and my critical willpower therefore depleted?Occasionally especially toward the end in the bit about childrearing the book seemed to assume that readers want themselves and their kids to behave like highly effective androids of flesh and bone but I never found this sense overly off putting maybe in part because I'm all about transforming myself into something like The Terminator in T2 than The Dude in The Big Lebowski Also it's not solely about unleashing your inner math god artistic examples are frequent than any others Trollope wrote 2500 words before breakfast it's easy when you break it down into 250 words every fifteen minutes For a pop sciencenon fiction book it's very readable and again seems to illuminate everyone's behavior especially my own but also that of co workers friends and maybe even the country as a whole Basically everyone's glucose levels have been screwy since the dot com bubble busted witness the election and reelection of Bush the mortgage crisis the collapse of the economy Sarah Palin the Tea Party and such screwiness depletes one's daily willpower supply even Obama needs the occasional cig Again really illuminating convincing and thus highly recommended to the few of you out there who've ever broken a resolution gone off a diet wanted to be efficient organized productive healthy and disciplined through strengthening of the will if not in a Triumph of the Will way
