The willpower optional task attribute registers how much energy the execution of the task consumes. Understanding energy as physical or mental energy. For example, solving a complex programming problem, doing long boring tasks or running a marathon have high willpower value, meanwhile watering the plants, going for a walk or to the cinema have a low value.

If your tasks have this property, it can help you determine the tasks to be done during the sprint and in what order so as not to burn yourself out. Or to analyze which tasks can be candidates for automation or habit building.

To set the value of a task use the wp or willpower keyword:

$: pydo add Add recurrence support to pydo willpower:4
  [+] Added task 5: Add recurrence support to pydo

As with the priority, I use a range of values from 0 to 5 but the parameter allows any integer.
