How to hack your willpower for greater creativity and productivity

In this episode, we’re going to talk about willpower and how it can affect our creativity. I also share how to take advantage of your willpower when it’s at its highest, plus the eight ways I hack my own willpower to set myself up for success.

As soon as we start,
things begin to flow.
Use every ounce of willpower you have to just start.

Discussed in this episode:

  • Willpower prioritizes long-term satisfaction over short-term gratification.
  • Our willpower fluctuates on any given day.
  • It’s helpful to document your willpower and monitor it as a study, without emotions involved.
  • “Using self control and effectively can actually lead to stronger willpower muscles.”
  • The eight ways I “hack” my own willpower.
