Read this ex­pert-packed piece to dis­cover that get­ting and staying mo­ti­vated has never been eas­ier

If you’ve ever tried some­thing hard – run­ning a marathon, get­ting a six-pack, learn­ing to box, writ­ing a best-sell­ing dystopian novel where chil­dren fight each other – you al­ready know that just want­ing it isn’t enough. Mo­ti­va­tion can get you started, but what gets you to the fin­ish is per­sis­tence: the abil­ity to push on through ob­sta­cles and in spite of dif­fi­cul­ties. The bad news? Hu­mans are lazy crea­tures, primed by our psy­ches and so­ci­ety to re­sist change while we daw­dle along the path of least re­sis­tance. The up­side? Sci­ence has brought us more ways to fix this than we’ve ever had be­fore. Read on to find out what they are.
