Can willpower be infinite?

I have always believed that will power is a finite source. I have many a times felt this too on a busy day. I would have spent all my mental power on a set of activities and by the time it trickles down to the last set of to-dos what's left is very little.

This article got me thinking though. Isn't calling willpower a finite source a sort of oxymoron? Isn't the point of will power the fact that it can be mustered when we really want it and if we really want it? Aren't you supposed to exercise will power until you achieve what you really want?

I am still thinking though. Is it?
