The Marshmallow Test – What would you choose?

In the short video above Dr. Michio Kaku describes “The Marshmallow Test” which asks children if they would like to have a marshmallow now, or if they would prefer to have 2 marshmallows in 2 hours.

Then, by seeing where children who have one or the other kind of desire and thinking go in life and what they are able to achieve, those who are willing to delay gratification achieve more.

Which I think speaks to the inherent benefit of cultivating patience in our lives. Are we willing to really put in the work and stick with our vision until see our dream become a reality?
