How to Stretch Time

Bookmark and Share
  • You procrastinate. Your day flies by.
  • You fully immerse yourself into a project. You've barely hit noontime.

Why?

You stretch time when you're in the zone. Psychologically, you manipulate your perception of time because you're intensely focused on every little tidbit that helps you accomplish your goal -- not distracted by how much time has elapsed.

But When You Start Checking...

Distracting yourself every X minutes to see the time (1) destroys your "in the zone" levels every time, and (2) forces you to rebuild your full concentration power levels again, and again, and again. Your resulting production time: flat.

WT@!$^?!

Shouldn't time fly when you're having fun? According to Duke neuroscientists: NO!

  • Time flies by because you're constantly looking at the clock to see how much 'time for fun' you have left.
  • But if you had ignored your watches/clocks, your perception of time would've differed: "Hey, we're having so much fun! And, we've barely hit noontime. Yay! High-five! Booyah!"

The paradox: You prolong your perception of time when you say NO! to constant watch-checking. Stretch time by fully immersing yo-rad-@^^-brain into sumthin' sumthin'.

Zone yo-self.
