Who's your willpower role model?

I enjoyed a story on the Today Show this morning about how to boost your willpower to achieve your goals. They interviewed Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D., a Standford University lecturer. This five minute video segment provides a pretty good framework for considering willpower. And, I love the question they posed -- Who's your willpower role model?

Thanks for sharing the video segment, Janet - found it very interesting. And it makes sense. With a newborn and a 2 year old, I rarely get more than 3-5 hours of sleep per night, not the 6 hrs mentioned, and seems like my will power has severaly dimished over the past year...maybe that is why! Likewise with scheduling activities (like working out) early in the day when your willpower is at its highest...hence why working out after work never seems to work for me! Kelly Velasquez
