Diminishment of the impulse for immediate gratification might diminish the number of people who are homeless

Certainly, the prime factor in leading a majority of homeless men into a life with many long periods of homelessness is giving in to immediate gratification instead of having longterm goals, and being just generally interested in one's future.

This viddie covers A LOT of ground -- all of it fascinating! -- but includes discussion of a technique -- mental gym, I think it's pithily called -- that can, perhaps, train a mind to pass on immediate gratification and go with long-term goals.  Great stuff; hella interesting.
