“A Pleasant Future Requires Present Sacrifice”

We all tend to accomodate our present-day self over our future-self.   This means we all sacrifice long term growth for short term gain.  This short lesson contains insights on:

  • How a Restauranteur lost his patrons because of a desire to have present fortune.
  • The now-famous Marshmallow Test, with an update on what the test-kids accomplish today
  • The Car Wash Experiment conducted at CSU
  • and more

As always, we also explore the Biblical principles and examples that expose the powerful truth that the present is worth sacrificing for the future.
