The Power of Habit: Willpower Part I

What’s the most important or most effective habit to have?

Dozens of studies show that willpower is the single most important keystone habit for individual success… Students who exerted high levels of willpower were more likely yo earn higher grades in their classes and gain admission into more selective schools. The had fewer absences and spent less time watching television and more hours of homework… And the best way to strengthen willpower and give students a leg up, studies indicate, is to make it into a habit. “Sometimes it looks like people with great self-control haren’t working hard- but tht’s because they’ve made it automatic.”… “Their willpower occurs without them having to think about it.” -Charles Duhigg (pg.131)
