TED Talk Challenge #24: The battle between your present and future self
December 24, 2011 Leave a comment
What I really like about this talk is how he breaks down the idea of making contracts with yourself. Daniel’s example is having to write every single day, and any day he didn’t he was required to give up $5. What he has realised is that this doesn’t really work, and can in fact have detrimental effects on your self-control in the future.
