Summary
A child is presented with a marshmallow and given a choice: eat this one now, or wait and enjoy two later. What will she do? And what are the implications for her behavior later in life? Walter Mischel's now iconic Marshmallow Test proved that the ability to delay gratification is critical to a successful and fulfilling life. Not only does self-control predict higher SAT scores, better social and cognitive skills, and a greater sense of self-worth, but also helps us manage stress, pursue goals more effectively, and cope with painful emotions. But is will-power pre-wired, or can it be taught? Mischel explores the nature of willpower and offers tips and strategies for improving and mastering self-control and applying it to everyday challenges like losing weight, quitting smoking and overcoming heartbreak
