Willpower is our vitality, it’s our inner energy, and it’s what enables us to do anything and everything in our lives.
It’s what pushes us to do the hard things we don’t feel like doing, even when there’s nobody to tell us.
And since it’s our fuel, once we run out of it our day is shot. We’ll spend the rest of that day working robotically until we can plop our butt’s back down on the couch at home. All our work becomes subpar, and any decisions we make will be determined by the easiest choice, not the best.
That’s what happens when we run out of willpower. As such, understanding, maintaining, and strengthening our willpower is essential to having a happy and productive day.
