One thought on “Mind Food Monday: Zimbardo and time.

  1. Great video! I love their stuff, and that one was packed with lots of great ideas to ceonidsr! Our culture does impact how we spend our time, and many groups have the right idea! I lived in Hawaii when I was a kid, and I remember how laid back the lifestyle was. It could have been because I was a kid AND because we didn’t have the internet or really cheap long distance or cell phones, and not just because we were closer to the equator! But I’ve always remember how the Pacific island nations seemed to savor time instead of rushing and wishing it away. Now to spend my time wisely today- it’s our most scarce resource!
