Monday Morning Roll Call is released every week by On The Blue Line and provides a short overview of issues that matter to you and provides encouragement for the week ahead.

In this episode we discuss:

  • This week, I tell a story from my teenage years about delaying gratification.
  • I discuss The Marshmallow experiment,” which is properly titled: 

The Cognitive and attentional mechanisms in delay of gratification. 

Mischel, Walter; Ebbesen, Ebbe B.; Raskoff Zeiss, Antonette 

[Article] Journal of Personality & Social Psychology. 21(2):204-218, February 1972.

  • Lastly, I discuss the importance of remembering the promise of a future reward that is greater than your temporary circumstances in order to keep in track in delaying gratification. 

After the episode: 

On The Blue Line was founded and is operated by active-duty law enforcement to fulfill the mission of providing guidance, resources and community for law enforcement officers, first responders, and military personal in their off-duty lives.
