Random Quote #6

“Recent evidence suggests that, with practice, self-control may become less effortful and less depleting to perform. (…) regular exercises in self-control help to make effortless what was once an effortful act of control. With enough practice, overriding a response tendency may itself become the predominant tendency.”
