A conversation with social psychologist and author Roy Baumeister, where we discuss:

- How self-control is one the best predictors of performance in many areas of life
- How you glucose level might account for far more than you think
- The importance of "precommitments" for self control
- Why you should never have difficult conversations in the evening
- The differences between "Eastern" and "Western" styles of thinking
- How unresolved trauma may prevent us from maintaining self-control
