Good insights on self motivation
Friday, Performance Tip, Impulse Control, Three Types of Will Power

In an earlier Friday Performance Tip, I reported a key insight from Kelly McGonigal’s book “The Willpower Instinct”.
Self-control is:
* a better predictor of academic & professional success then intelligence
* a stronger predictor of leadership than charisma
* more important for marital bliss than empathy

Building on this, the author points out that there are three distinct types of will power, which activate different brain areas and circuits. They are:
1. I Will
2. I Won’t
3. I Want
So from a “better performance” perspective it is optimal to think about and create three perspectives / lists to guide you to your goals and through your impulse control challenges. Clearly think about and articulate what “I Want”, “What I Will Do” and “What I Won’t Do”
