In our daily lives, we sometimes need to engage in activities that we do not enjoy, often for the sake of a personal goal. Students, for example, may sometimes need to read textbooks they find profoundly boring, and athletes may need to practice their sports at painfully high intensities to increase their performance. Moreover, many occupations involve tasks that are perceived as monotonous (e.g. assembly line work) or require workers to cope with emotional stressors (e.g. in emergency management or intensive care units). When an activity is boring, difficult, or requires physical or mental effort, persistence in it requires self-regulation (or self-control), 1 that is, processes by which individuals can alter their cognitive, emotional, or behavioural responses in the service of their long-term goals (Baumeister, Vohs, & Tice, 2007). To date, relatively little is known about how people try to promote their own persistence in such everyday activities. Which self-regulatory strategies do they spontaneously use? And how much do these strategies actually help them to persist? In the present research, we attempted to answer these questions while placing them into the larger context of individual differences in trait self-control. More specifically, we investigated (i) the self-regulatory strategies people use spontaneously in their everyday lives, for different activities and when confronted with various demands, (ii) the reported effectiveness of these strategies as a function of demand types, (iii) the extent to which individual differences in trait self-control predict the use of self-regulatory strategies, and (iv) whether, in turn, the use of these self-regulatory strategies can explain why people, who are high in trait self-control, report being more successful in regulating their persistence in a given moment.

Larger modern propeller planes, such as the Dash 8, use a jet engine to turn the propeller, primarily because an equivalent piston engine in power output would be much larger and more complex.

Propeller engines may be quieter than jet engines (though not always) and may cost less to purchase or maintain and so remain common on light general aviation aircraft such as the Cessna 172 . <span>Larger modern propeller planes, such as the Dash 8 , use a jet engine to turn the propeller, primarily because an equivalent piston engine in power output would be much larger and more complex.

Whether you are using SQLite as an end user, writing programs that use SQLite, or using it as a learning platform for relational theory and SQL, SQLite can be installed on Windows with a minimum of fuss. In this section, we will cover all the options, from installing the available binary packages to building everything from source using the most popular compilers. We start with the easy things first and progress to things more technically challenging.

The first jet airliner, the de Havilland Comet, was introduced in 1952. The Boeing 707, the first widely successful commercial jet, was in commercial service for more than 50 years, from 1958 to at least 2013.
