Excellent course. Game-changing, really. Self-control is the determining factor of whether an individual will live a fulfilling, successful life or not. Understanding it in-depth is crucial. If you have Chrome, download the extension 'video speed controller' to speed it up to 2x, because he does speak very slow. You will find it much more enjoyable and thought-provoking, rather than pedantic.

Prof is a very clear communicator. Maybe a little too slow for some. Somewhat redundant, too. However, some good advice for an area where many of us struggle. Best ideas: Self-control requires energy that can be used up, so when you're spent, do some refreshing activities. We can exercise it to become better at it, so practice. We can pre-decide how to handle recurring problems, so think ahead. Make decisions when you're fresh: never when tired.
