Our attitudes toward time have a profound impact on our life and our world, but we rarely recognize them. Our perception of, and relationship to, time influences everything from how we communicate, to how we decide whether to take risks, to our enjoyment of life. If we more fully understand our own attitudes toward time, we can use that understanding to break unhealthy attachments to the past, resist the trap of instant gratification, and move confidently toward our future goals. Dr Philip Zimbardo addresses some of these concepts in this brief (10 minute) animated video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3oIiH7BLmg. There is also a longer lecture version here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJybVxUiy2U (41 minutes).
