Decision fatigue

Willpower, something every romance alpha male has. But it's not all mind over matter. Do You Suffer From Decision Fatigue, an article in the New York Times Magazine online, explores decision-making and energy. There's a reason your vendor calls all the time at 4 pm. There's a reason you spend four hours resisting that chocolate cake only to then give in.

There's a reason it gets harder to decide, the more decisions you make.

I took away two things. Getting tired after being hit by lots of choices is completely normal. And the best aid to self-control is structuring life to conserve willpower.
