  1. Video Summary-
    1) Rewards are good motivators, but ineffective when taken away
    2) 'Play' and 'just for fun' are more effective for achieving long-term goals
    3) Be optimistic but also acknowledge obstacles- 'mental contrasting'
    4) Recognize that the path to success is never entirely smooth- don't think that all efforts have gone to waste after 1 cheat day

  2. There is advice for people with goals but without motivation, but what about people who have absolutely no earthy desires for anything? I can't get myself to want ANYTHING. Neither fear and self-domineering nor gentle attempts at positive reinforcement work. I'm miserable without any goals or purpose.
