Liked this one by a Stanford University lecturer about (as the title suggests) willpower.

I will, I won’t & I want.  That is all you need to know about willpower, goal setting is also useful. Nicely written touches upon evidence behind willpower often citing studies of a few hundred typically overweight Americans.
