David Gurteen makes some interesting connections to my post a few weeks back on willpower and its limits.

This is the kind of research that is so important as it questions ways of thinking and working, so deeply entrenched that we take them for granted. For example how many self-help books go on and on about the importance of clarifying and focusing on your objectives. Wouldn’t it be tragic if this were actually counterproductive?

Pushing this particular philosophical envelope, maybe David Bohm was right that language deceives us about the true nature of reality.
