Willpower is a complicated animal. Sometimes we’re forcing ourselves to accomplish things and this is healthy, sometimes we do the same and it’s not. Personally, I just want someone to tell me what to do with my life.

In this video, the folks over at Epipheo talk about the differences in willpower: “I Will-Power”, “I Want-Power”, and “I Won’t-Power”. Since willpower is like a muscle, tiring after prolonged use without rest, tapping into these different sources becomes incredibly valuable. Personally, I use “I Will-Power” every time I do my household chores, and “I Want-Power” every time I go to the gym and the results are palpable.

How do you get the job done? How do you tap into those personal resources and make awesome stuff happen?
