Join New York Times Best Selling Author and pioneering social psychologist Roy Baumeister explore how the often misunderstood concept of willpower really works to affect nearly every aspect of our lives. In 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. This webinar will cover how to build willpower and how to conserve it for crucial moments by setting the right goals and using the best techniques for monitoring your progress. However you define happiness, better understanding willpower and mastering self-control will give you the tools you need to reach your goals.
