  • You know that feeling when you really want to accomplish something, but it seems like your brain is almost fighting against you.


  • We actually have something more like two minds.


  • That's Kelly McGonigal, author of The Willpower Instinct.

    這句話是《輕鬆駕馭意志力》的作者 Kelly McGonigal 說的。

  • Uh, we have one brain that is very responsive to our immediate needs, and when we're in that mindset, we tend to make choices that are inconsistent with our long-term goals.


  • But we also all have this other brain; this other mindset that thinks about long-term consequences; remembers what our big values are; takes a kind of expansive view on our lives and our choices.

    但我們也都有另一個大腦 ,另一種思維方式會使我們設想長期的結果、記得自己的重要價值觀,以及用寬闊的目光檢視我們的人生和選擇。

  • And when we're in that mindset and that system of the brain is in control of our choices, we tend to do things that make our future self actually happier and healthier; more productive, more successful.


  • So Kelly says that while many of us think of willpower as the ability to say 'no' to that short-term part of our brain, it can actually be much more effective to tap into the different types of willpower that help us unleash the long-term part of our brain.

    所以 Kelly 說,雖然我們許多人認為意志力是向大腦思考短期利益的部分說「不」的能力,但我們其實能更有效地開發不同類型的意志力,幫助我們釋放大腦思考長期目標的部分。

  • Many people think of willpower as the ability to resist temptation.


  • But willpower is actually three powers: I Will Power, I Won't Power, and I Want Power.


  • I Won't Power is what we typically think of as willpower; it's the ability to resist temptation.


  • I Will Power, that's the ability to remember that you want the consequences of doing this difficult thing.


  • And the third power, I Want Power, the ability to walk around the world with a clear memory of what it is you care about most.


  • So that when you're deciding what to eat for lunch, it's not an automatic choice, but actually in that moment you think about your desire for health.


  • And actually what willpower does is it allows you to put your energy and attention on exactly what it is you want and what you care about.


  • So if you want to change automatic behavior prompted by that short-term part of our brain, we can't just rely on I Won't willpower, which will eventually wear down.


  • We also have to tap into I Will willpower, like whenever I'm tempted to eat a piece of chocolate cake, I will eat a handful of carrots instead.


  • Or I Want willpower, like when I'm tempted to smoke, I'll remind myself that I really want to be alive to see my grandchildren.

    或是開發「我真正想要」的能力,例如想要抽菸時我會提醒自己,我真的很想活著見到孫子孫女 。

  • By doing this, we're tapping into new sources of willpower, and it will make changing those behaviors that much easier.


  • Hey guys, my name is Kirsten.
