The Psychology of Time

Have you ever wondered how some people make such good use of their time while others work at a frantic pace and accomplish much less?

When I teach timelines at NLP practitioner level, most people find that the way they personally structure time has a marked effect on every area of their lives.

In the following video, psychologist Philip Zimbardo (most famous for the Stanford Prison Experiment) talks about the many effects of our subjective experience of time.
