The Secret Powers of Time

This video is hardly new (it has 1.5 million hits on YouTube since it was posted 7+ months ago), but it just came to my attention via the ForaTV playlist. In it, Professor Philip Zimbardo conveys how our individual perspectives of time affect our work, health and well-being. Time influences who we are as a person, how we view relationships and how we act in the world.

I am just mesmerized by the genius of these whiteboard animations. Maybe because the way my brain is wired, but for me, this particular form of presentation is the most effectively memorable (and entertaining) way of succinctly communicating complex ideas – or in this case, “the most simple idea in the world.”
