There was an interesting topic on the Freakonomics podcast this week which made me think of some of our discussions here.

http://freakonomics.com/2015/03/13/when-willpower-isnt-enough-a-new-freakonomics-radio-podcast/

The idea that willpower isn't enough but that there are ways to make less attractive tasks automatic by attaching them to things you really do want to do.

I like "temptation bundling..."

Great name, too.

It's a little like a special case of what I talked about in the "compound and atomic tasking" podcast episode way back.
