Most authors berate us for lack of mental toughness. In my experience, mental toughness is overrated and Steve Pavlina is right… Your environment will eat your goals for breakfast.
It’s very, very true, but seldom talked about. That’s what Marshall discusses in this book: the fact that our environment is out to get us, why even smart people need structure, and a simple tool to help us override triggers that make us do things we’ll regret.
