Episode 71: The Challenge of Self-Control with Author Drew Dyck
In No Hurry with Cole Douglas Claybourn
Why do we struggle so much with controlling our urges? What does it mean to have self-control? What do the Bible and those who study brain science have to say about it? Drew Dyck wrote a book exploring all of that. It's called "Your Future Self Will Thank You," and it was the In No Hurry Podcast Book of the Month. As we close out Lent season, it felt like the perfect book to read. This conversation is a recording of my Instagram Live chat with Drew. For all Book of the Month interviews with the author, be sure to join us live on Instagram when we do them toward the end of each month. You can find out about them by following me on Instagram @coleclaybourn. I really enjoyed talking with Drew about this book, and I think you'll enjoy his wisdom and humor in this conversation. Be sure to give him a follow on Twitter @drewdyck and on Instagram @drewndyck. Also check out his website — drewdyck.com. PROGRAMMING NOTE: As mentioned on the show, this will be the last episode for Season 2. I'm going to take a pause until later on in the summer as I take some time to focus on my writing. With that, I'm so thrilled to announce that I was accepted to participate in Lysa TerKeurst's Book Proposal Bootcamp — an exciting and rare opportunity for me in my journey of writing a book! You'll hear me talk plenty about the program in the intro, and a major part of that is the cost. I have set up a GoFundMe to help fund my spot in this program, and I am prayerfully asking that you will consider supporting me — both financially and through prayer!

207. Your Future Self Will Thank You with Drew Dyck
Let's Parent on Purpose with Jay Holland
We're starting off the New Year with a discussion on willpower and self-control and the Bible and science behind it, with author Drew Dyck. Show Highlights Drew Dyck is an editor at Moody Publishers and the former managing editor of Leadership Journal. His work has been featured in USA Today, the Huffington Post, Christianity Today, and CNN.com. Drew is the author of Generation Ex-Christian and Yawning at Tigers. He lives with his wife Grace and their three children near Portland, Oregon. As we all prepare for the New Year, Drew reminds us, don't despise the small resolutions. Start with two or, even better, just focus on one. You only have so much willpower. Start small but consistent, and if you can power through that 30-60 days of habit formation, it will be cemented in your life. That's when you can start forming another habit. If you approach it in their incremental way, you'll have far more success. Drew was moved to write his book because he realized that he himself needed to grow in the area of self-control. As he start reading about willpower and building healthy habits, he started wondering what he was reading could also help others, especially from the scripture perspective. Where does scripture play in to self-control and willpower? Drew says, most secular self-help books can be effective, but they do not address one major thing: your priorities. As Christians, we want to have our faith and values, to love God and love our neighbor, as the core motivation for everything that we are doing, even the mundane things should be tied to their spiritual significance. Drew also points out that though the scripture is filled with stories of struggle, of difficult things that we have to go through, God is always with us. This is not something we can do ourselves. We need the empowerment of God, striving with His spirit, not against it. Try nailing down where you want to use your willpower by identifying your keystone habits. A keystone habit is one that is not only beneficial in and of itself, but a habit that is beneficial across the spectrum of your life. For instance, nightly family dinners are observed to have benefits for marriages to last longer, kids to have better grades and more. Exercise is another keystone habit. You not only get healthier, but you also start eating better and your productivity will increase. Another keystone habit, just five minutes of prayer and meditation, can increase your self-control for the day. Bible reading and church attendance are other keystone habits.
