Excerpt from the book

Other Best Practices:

Understand Willpower Depletion. Each of us has a finite amount of willpower each day. As the day goes on your willpower gets depleted, making it harder to do the next thing on your list.

In his book, “The Power of Habit“, Charles Duhigg talks about something called the Hot/Cold Empathy Gap. This explains the struggle people have with New Year’s Resolutions. People make commitments when they’re “Hot” (inspired/motivated) and fail to take into consideration how they’ll feel when they’re “Cold” (tired & overwhelmed). This happens every day with to-do lists as well. You’ll make a plan to complete all the tasks on your list with every intention of following through to the end.

2. Do less

Do you feel overcommitted? Change your commitment. No need to make yourself a martyr. Evaluate the commitment and see if it’s something you genuinely want right now. If it’s a commitment to yourself, say “I change my commitment!” If it’s a commitment that involves other people, then you can send them a nice email or text explaining reasons.

Commitments we make but don’t act on are the “open-ends” we talked about earlier. They’re the cause of the majority of people’s stress. You make commitments to others you can’t always follow through on and you’ve likely made commitments to yourself that you’re not even aware of. “Eat healthier” and “clean garage” are a couple of examples.

Schedule Everything. What gets scheduled gets done. Harvard Business Review calls this “living i
