Delay Gratification

June 12, 2009

This Ted Talk describes a study I read about years ago regarding the potential implications of delaying gratification. It’s a nice reminder for Christians that things happen on God’s time, not our own. On a more mundane note, those of you who found Outliers’ message of deliberate practice interesting will find this study thought provoking as well.
