The Time Paradox is not a single paradox but a series of paradoxes that shape our lives and our destinies. For example:
Time is one of the most powerful influences on our thoughts, feelings, and actions, yet we are usually totally unaware of the effect of time in our lives.
Each specific attitude toward time—or time perspective—is associated with numerous benefits, yet in excess each is associated with even greater costs.
Individual attitudes toward time are learned through personal experience, yet collectively attitudes toward time influence national destinies.
