Out of all the skills in life, willpower and self-control are the most important. Without these two, any other skill becomes nearly impossible to master.
Three of the best researchers on this subject are Daniel Kahneman, who wrote Thinking Fast and Slow, Charles Duhigg who wrote The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, and Roy F. Baumeister who wrote Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength.
In this SlideShare (part of the Knowledge Share mentoring program), I'll break down the key lessons from each book as well as what I've learned on my personal journey of Willpower & Self-Control mastery. I'll specifically outline how and where Willpower and Self-Control originate and ways you can strengthen your ability to exert these invaluable skills.
