The Willpower Trick

Wired discusses how those who are usually described as having "strong willpower" tend to achieve this by avoiding tempting situations in the first place. Now I like to think I'm more on the "square" side in terms of what I've experienced, but it's only after I read this article that I realised there may be a correlation between that and certain behaviour patterns - or "rules" as my criticising friends put it - I try to maintain.

I guess a part of the whole thing is to realise that sometimes, we are just human and the best way to not be tempted is to be a little extreme and physically limit the opportunity for these things to happen - and that it's more smart than weak to do this.
