What I’m Reading – Week of August 9th

Below are some of the most intriguing, thought-provoking and actionable performance-related content pieces I read, watched or listened to this week.

  • The Myth of Grit and Determination

“Behavioral goals are difficult because they tend to revolve around conflicting desires.”


  • Appearances vs Experiences: What Really Makes Us Happy

“In the search for happiness, we often confuse how something looks with how it’s likely to make us feel.”


  • How Smart People Make Better Decisions

“Thinking about your thinking — most decisions require a deeper level of exploration.”


  • Willpower And Self-Control

“Self-control and discipline operate the same. Just because you may get briefly distracted by the urge to stay in bed or binge on Netflix instead of getting in your workout doesn’t mean you actually have to do it. “
