John Tierney and Roy Baumeister join me for this week’s illuminating episode of the Calmer You Podcast.

They are out to revolutionise our understanding of the most coveted human virtue: self-control. They are so generous with the content they share. I hope you love this podcast

John Tierney is the author of Willpower and writes the ‘Findings’ science column for the New York Times. His writing has won awards from the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Institute of Physics.

Roy F. Baumeister is the author of Willpower and a social psychologist who explores how we think about the self, and why we feel and act the way we do. He is especially known for his work on the subjects of willpower, self-control, and self-esteem, and how they relate to human morality and success. 

We discuss:

  • What the power of bad is and how it could be ruling your life
  • The ‘rule of 4’ and how it’s essential to maintain healthy relationships
  • Why good enough really is enough
  • A vital practise for being a more positive person
