Dr. Joanna Hersey joins me for this Book Report. We discuss Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength by Roy Baumeister.

Topics Covered:

5:31 - Introduction to my co-host for this episode, Joanna Hersey

9:30 - Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength by Roy Baumeister

10:52 - Online review that I felt summed up this book nicely: "This is a self-help book without all the hooey"

12:12 - “The clear implication was that the best advice for young writers and aspiring professors is: Write every day. Use your self-control to form a daily habit, and you’ll produce more with less effort in the long run.”

21:07 - “For most of us, though, the problem is not a lack of goals but rather too many of them.”

26:48 - “First I make a list of priorities: one, two, three, and so on. Then I cross out everything from three on down.”

32:31 - “Dieters have a fixed target in mind for their maximum daily calories, and when they exceed it for some unexpected reason, such as being given a pair of large milkshakes in an experiment, they regard their diet as blown for the day. That day is therefore mentally classified as a failure, regardless of what else happens. Virtue cannot resume until tomorrow.”

38:02 - “When you pick your battles, look beyond the immediate challenges and put your life in perspective. Are you where you want to be? What could be better?”

You can help me reach two specific goals I've set for TEM:

1. Help me get to $50 per episode on Patreon by pledging as little as $1 per episode to support the show:  https://www.patreon.com/tempodcast

2. Help me get to my goal of 50 ratings at iTunes (I'm really close!) by leaving a rating and review.

And finally, a huge thank you to Parker Mouthpieces for providing the hosting for TEM.
