How much self-discipline do we really have‪?‬ Humans & Hope

    • Society & Culture

In this episode I’m talking to Professor Roy Baumeister about self-discipline and willpower.
 
We’ll explore how much control we really have over our thinking and behaviour, how self-discipline can help us in life and how we can strengthen our own self-discipline as well as other people’s, such as that of our children!
 
Professor Baumeister is Professor of Psychology at the University of Queensland in Australia. His research explores how we think about the self, and why we feel and act the way we do. He is especially known for his work on the subjects of willpower, self-control, and self-esteem, and how they relate to human morality and success.
