Improve Your Relationship with Time

Make Time Work for You

Phillip Zimbardo and Phillip Boyd - authors of The Time Paradox - invite us to improve our relationship with time and change our lives. In a series of 3 paradoxes - "that shape our lives and our destinies" - they reveal that time can work for us rather than against us. This offers us opportunities to consciously choose the role that time plays in our professional success and personal happiness.

Paradox 1
Time is one of the most powerful influences on our thoughts, feelings, and actions, yet we are usually totally unaware of the affect of time in our lives.

Paradox 2
Each specific attitude toward time—or time perspective—is associated with numerous benefits, yet in excess each is associated with even greater costs.

Paradox 3
Individual attitudes toward time are learned through personal experience, yet collectively attitudes toward time influence national destinies.
