Beginner to Chess Master #18 - The King & the Box

This is video #18 from the "Beginner to Chess Master" playlist. There will come a moment in an endgame where we must determine if a king can successfully catch a passed pawn, or in other words be in time to successfully hunt down a pawn. What approach do you take exactly to figure this out? Do you calculate, count, and/or visualize both the king and pawn moves? Illustrated in this video is an efficient technique that avoids any calculation/counting, or visualization mistakes when determining whether the king can catch the pawn or not. Are you familiar with this "artistic" method?
