Goal Setting and Self Discipline

Choosing goals that express the true self

A novel mechanism of the effect of self‐control on goal attainment has been published by Olga Stavrova, Tila Pronk and Michail Kokkoris

Why is trait self‐control associated with successful goal progress? Three studies showed that high (vs. low) self‐control individuals are more likely to report successful goal attainment and this association was mediated by their tendency to select the goals that reflect their true/authentic self.
