Each day we start with a fresh jar full of willpower points. As you go through the day you spend them to get stuff done.
It might start with something small like getting out of bed when the alarm rings or something bigger like getting yourself down to the gym.
As you do stuff that requires self-control or willpower you spend those points.
Did you know the pre-frontal cortex needs energy to function? So if you are tired or your blood sugar is low then you start off the day with a smaller jar!
Ever noticed how much harder it is to resist stuff at the end of the day? It’s because your jar of willpower points is empty so you default back to your primal brain – your subconscious.
In this programme I am not trying to stop you emptying your jar. I am not trying to stop you spending your willpower points – that’s a therapy issue!
What I am going to do is get you to the stage where you have a bigger jar at the start of the day so that they don’t run out - giving you an increased ability to exert self-control over those things you want to do throughout your day.

How much time will I need?
Each day you will need to set aside 15 minutes to read content / watch videos and complete the task. You can do this at any time, but preferrably at the start of the day, especially if you want feedback.
There may be a few things that challenge your willpower. Maybe you have a task or some paperwork to do that you have been putting off. Maybe you are trying to stop eating a particular food. Maybe you want to do more exercise. Whatever it is make sure your willpower challenge is specific
“I want to be able to go for a run 3 times a week”
“I want to be able to stop eating crisps”
“I want to study for my course”
Impulsive: : doing things or tending to do things suddenly and without careful thought : acting or tending to act on impulse. : done suddenly and without planning : resulting from a sudden impulse.
You have a reason for doing this right? It's a reason that's way bigger than today, tomorrow or even next week. Having an idea of the bigger picture goal makes it easier to deal with blips along the way. What is your "So what?"
What are the consequences of giving in to your habits / lack of habits? What does it mean to 'start tomorrow'?
Your brain rewards you for doing things the same way again and again. It doesn't care about the outcome. It doesn't care if it's a good or a bad thing. It just cares that you don't change. This can make breaking a habit particularly tricky!
Time to be honest with yourself. What excuses do you usually use for meeting the need rather than exerting willpower?
Wow! Can you believe it's been 7 days already? It's time to reflect on everything you have achieved.
It may be that you have bigger issues than you can consciously override. For example, you may eat because you are stressed. You can work hard to not eat so much rubbish, but that doesn't change that you are stressed so you will eventually have to revert to habits to cope.
