In this short TEDTalk from TED U, Joachim de Posada discusses a landmark experiment on delayed gratification. Can a child's future success be predicted by whether or not that child can exercise self-control? The presentation includes priceless footage of kids trying their hardest not to eat the proffered marshmallows. Speaker and leadership coach de Posada is also the author of How to Survive Among the Piranhas and Don't Eat the Marshmallow...Yet.
