@Pierre, my first guess, given my general skepticism about human nature, is that people will only want to learn more about themselves if those are goods things they're learning. Otherwise, no.

Yes. It is the true definition of people getting in their own way. The systems and skills are transferrable and should be applied to all aspects of life to achieve a better overall well being.

Yes, it's one of the studies that Jonah Lehrer relates in his book How We Decide.  I read it after Olivia Parr-Rud recommended it here in the comments section of one of her blogs.

Once again, Ariella, another great link. Thanks for sharing! (And I'd not heard of the marshmellow test previously. So interesting.)

Michelle,

You're right about human behavior - we've also reached a point where personal analytics become possible.  From the introduction of the Next thermostat to your great post on Cozy, there's more available to learn about ourselves, with traditionally dormant devices becoming "active".  It will bear watching how much people are willing to learn about themselves and how much will be overlooked - I see a lot of potential for some companies to solve a question that was not asked, as well as opportunity to provide an a-ha!  Thanks for sharing this insight.

@Beth Unfortunately that is too true for most. But there have been studies in which some 5 year-olds were able to resist present temptation for reward later in the famous marshmallow test of delayed gratification.

tinym, now that would be useful data! Although, something tells me even the hard statistics wouldn't much sway a child of any age who wants what he or she wants and wants it now!

It is funny how so much effort is put into business & work efficiency and so little in personal efficiency. I can imagine a synergistic effect where work and home are so efficient that we actually achieve something like 4x the expected result.

What I find funny is that people have coaches and efficiency tools for most aspects of their professional lives BUT nothing for the personal. If we apply the same systems and resources for both, we could be 2x as effective.
