Willpower has limits. If the rewards or punishments are high enough, and you're in a situation long enough, you will eventually reach your limit.

We live in a time where we have massive power to structure the incentives in our own lives. We can find new social circles, jobs, past times that have incentives in line with our values.

You will be much stronger in life if you’re not swimming upstream; if your incentives are in line with your values it is much more likely you will live up to your ideals. 

In this episode:

  • Creating your own structural incentives
  • Aligning incentives with values
  • The incentives of politics
  • The incentives of professors
  • Who you need to please to get paid is who you will please
