The Gentle Art of Self-Control — David Cain, Raptitude
Self-control is a hot topic in the fitness industry. The personal trainer’s approach has taken a radical 180 turn in recent years — and for good reason.
Think back to when you were a child. Recall your parent, teacher, or some authority figure telling you what to do.
Did you do it? Probably. Did you hate said authority figure a little? Probably. Did part of you count the seconds until he/she was gone so you could blatantly disobey?
That’s the problem (or even paradox) with discipline, whether it’s self-imposed or from an external source. Part of you likes to follow rules, and part of you wants anarchy. It’s a delicate thing, and delicate things must be handled gently.
In this week’s top article, David Cain explores the absurd social norms that stop us from stealing million dollar paintings… and how they relate to self-control.
