In this short talk from TED U, Joachim de Posada shares a landmark experiment on delayed gratification — and how it can predict future success. The test involves giving a little child one piece of marshmallow and informing that if in 15 minutes the marshmallow will still not be eaten, the child will get another one. The extremely cute videos of tempted children and the simple, but powerful message make this Talk one of the most unforgettable ones.
