“The future of our nation causes Americans more stress than any other topic.”
This week on Radio Headspace: What happens if we live without time?
Time is obviously a concept that figures prominently in our lives, both long-term and short-term – regrets about the past, concerns about the future, worrying about being late for meetings or not having enough time to get things done.
In this episode I set out to explore whether it’s possible to worry less about time, and be more aware of what is going on in the present moment.
I’ll be speaking to Steve Corona, former CTO of Twitpic, who publicly decided to get rid of all the time cues in his life, and Dan Everett, a world famous linguist known for his extensive work with an Amazonian tribe called the Piraha whose language doesn’t have numbers and whose concept of time is, therefore, very different from our own.
We’ll also be conducting our own social experiment, as Shannon from the Headspace team and I try to live without time for a week.
