On this Monday morning I need some serious discipline in order to get my work done.
This means I need some self-control- which I found inspiration for from these kids.
This test was done on kids in the 80’s and they followed them for the next 20 years or so, and sure enough, the kids who were able to have self-control at 4 years old were all around more successful.
How many 4 year olds do you know could be left alone with a marshmallow for 5 minutes, with the promise that if they waited, upon the adults return they could have 2 marshmallows – or they could settle for instant gratification. (Seems like I know more adults these days that choose the instant gratification over lasting satisfaction.) Which one are you?
Perhaps I should try some of these kids’ ideas for passing the time???
Side Note… I don’t really like marshmallows… so my incentive today – COFFEE 🙂
