0:25

time zones set people live in

0:27

to focus on the past two and the presidential in the future

0:30

the people who focus on the past

0:33

either remember all the good old times

0:35

successes happy birthday is

0:37

with ballots are these are the people who who keep the family record a family

0:41

0:53

did too easy president most obvious is to be hedonistic at legislation you

0:57

avoid pain

0:58

he seekingalpha seek sensation

1:01

rather people present or anything because they say it doesn't pay to plan

1:04

my life is is fading faded by my religion faded by my poverty

1:08

treated by the conditions have been a moving on

1:12

most of us are here because we have future-oriented that we have learned to

1:16

work rather plated

1:17

to resist temptation

1:19

but there's another way to be future-oriented depending on your

1:22

religion

1:23

life begins after the death of the mortal body computer oriented

1:27

you have to trust

1:28

that when you make a decision about the future going to carry out

1:32

if you have been ab

1:33

grade inflation

1:35

you don't put money in the bank

1:36

but you can't trust the future

1:38

if you have is instability in your family

1:42

adults can't keep their promises to you

1:45

close you are to the equator arab

1:47

the more pressing or entity or the more you in an environment where climate

1:51

doesn't change

1:52

it gives you a second matching

1:55

sameness rather than change

1:57

protestants everywhere have higher gross national product in catholic countries

2:00

in part because of a process that because of

2:04

the notion that you work hard to succeed to demonstrate that your cost chosen

2:08

people

2:10

and my family comes from sicily

2:12

and italy there is a political movement called bandleader to cut italy in half

2:17

had north diddly in south italy

2:19

kutta just below casket the people in the let's say

2:23

we do all the work

2:24

the people in south of lake it like children they want have babies at

2:27

reality dinners

2:28

up et cetera people in south say did not academy the german australia

2:34

younger setup asap

2:36

dictate a collection of paper bag

2:38

and in the recent election that at the leader got fourteen percent of the

2:42

national vote

2:44

it turns out

2:46

is accurate redone researches say people in the north tend to be on a scale much

2:50

more future-oriented people it's not going to be more past

2:53

past oriented or present hedonistic

2:55

and so my family is sicilian

2:58

and i come from sits at the back every year started educational foundation

3:01

woodson high school kids to college and set of computer labs

3:05

and i'm talking about some of the stuff but the men comes up to some pollack

3:09

ended with words

3:10

was until i heard to talk realize

3:12

there's no future tense bird in sicilian dialect

3:16

should we meet it was

3:19

is no will be he said that's why nothing gets done

3:23

tonight in realize it because we never planned

3:26

at seventy and here's how would you happen i'm burt people

3:30

who share a certain time perspective

3:32

it does come to characterize the nation the same way

3:35

if you had a catholic nation with people tend to be present or past oriented

3:40

revenue prod estimation in general people tend to be watching transit

3:43

ineffectual in very profound ways

3:45

so it is a wonderful book called the geography of time and it's written by

3:49

dear friend of mine robert levine who's that

3:52

at yam

3:53

social psychologist

3:54

and he actually literally when around the world

3:58

doing wonderful experiments he looks at what he calls the pace of life

4:02

see i time prospective is how people divide their own experience into

4:07

partitions time's up

4:08

another kind of time orientation is their sense of duration

4:13

how much time has expired might be sitting a dentist's office before they

4:17

start killing

4:18

how much time has expired when you've been uh... waiting in line how much time

4:22

is expired wherein

4:24

of you having fun press set

4:27

trip on direction is totally a function of

4:29

with your bored with your decided or not

4:32

out and what he does is

4:34

he shows that the different cultures

4:36

people have a different taste of life

4:38

and you do this very simply use it in the cafe you mark a four hundred meters

4:42

as people pasha start stop watching to see how fast people walk he'll post

4:47

office

4:47

and anticipate you say i'd like

4:50

but three pounds of of in this postage or ten euros

4:55

you see how long it takes

4:57

so he's a bunch of

4:59

on these measures and turns out you can identify cultures as different pace of

5:04

life and out cities shows in america you could ranked sixty cities according

5:10

high pace of life and locates the flight

5:12

the ones are the highest

5:14

pick pace of life men have the most coronary problems that is the spartans

5:19

becomes part of your whole no way of life

5:21

we all begin life as presidents

5:24

all of us me

5:25

at the breast at the bottle b_-one pleasure one of what kind

5:29

and one of things that can lead to and especially school might my senses

5:34

the purpose of schooling is a take present or include little peace and make

5:37

the more future-oriented some cultures make them look past orient

5:40

in america as a child process school every nine seconds

5:45

this is worse for trip to some minority background

5:48

it's worse for boys and girls

5:50

is actually

5:51

a disaster recipe developing a month voice in america there's little dropping

5:56

out of high school college

5:57

it's not

5:58

simply poor performance

6:00

one of the problems here's a recent study shows that by the time of waste

6:04

twenty one

6:05

hispanic at least

6:07

thousand hours playing video games alone

6:10

probably more watching pornography

6:12

and you put that together means a they haven't learned social skills emotional

6:16

social calendar

6:17

but also it means that

6:19

they live in the world that they create the playing warcraft explains how the

6:22

gangs

6:23

which is exciting in fact yes i just heard the other day

6:26

that these game companies another note

6:30

developed three d games

6:31

so that they didn't vote world the all around

6:35

their brains have been beauty of the reward

6:38

which means they will never see it in a traditional classroom which is not a lot

6:43

somebody talk city without even a nice pictures

6:45

nini its border mean you control nothing to fear passively

6:49

and if you want to change the curriculum at anderson the traditions here say we

6:53

gotta go back to reading writing and for that

6:56

these kids will never fit into that

6:58

they have to be in a situation where they are controlling something

7:01

and school is set up you control nothing you're passing

7:05

school is all about learning delay of gratification little endlessly

7:10

all addictions are going to the president's

7:13

flute section drugs gambling set

7:16

all of our

7:18

propaganda already can't relax it's all a public relations that city's are

7:23

designed for future-oriented kids who's not a problem

7:25

they tell you that he is the negative consequences of doing what you doing

7:29

control kids know that they don't do it presently in kids

7:32

know the future consequences

7:35

if you're a at teenage girl you know that if you have unprotected sex

7:39

you're likely to get pregnant or second cousins these you know it

7:42

the technology never feeds back to change your behavior

7:45

so that's the interesting thing about trying to slip

7:48

i think we are underestimating

7:50

the power technology in and rewiring young people's brains

7:55

kids don't wear responses to the state it's a single function divides

7:59

you don't you don't waste time a single function about and they live in did you

8:02

think what matters is the second

8:05

itunes and he mentioned one of things that gets people of seven americans

8:08

how long it takes

8:10

to build up your computer and how long it takes a download something less than

8:14

a minute

8:15

that makes people angry

8:18

sitter becomes an emotional thing you get you get angry waiting in line

8:21

waiting for services

8:23

weighty is a waste of time even if it's waiting for your computer buddha i think

8:27

this fundamental change going on in our culture

8:30

but i think we adults are not realizing that kids

8:33

a totally different than we were

8:36

and if it becomes because this revolution time

8:39

there's a a recent study we did with

8:42

u_s_a_ today

8:44

asking americans how busy they are

8:46

the vast majority of american with the fifteen cents at

8:49

i'm busier now than it was last year busy last in the previous year

8:53

and i sacrifice friends

8:55

family and sleep

8:56

for my success this is across the board dot separating by featuring

9:01

and then if they suppose you had eight for jagadics eight-day week what would

9:04

you do

9:06

we still have a great

9:07

they withstand that most that time working hard cheating more not with

9:12

friends not with family

9:13

and not even not even something

9:15

they did a study twenty years ago and i was upset again from the stallion back

9:19

but

9:19

only sixty percent of americans have been regular sit-down family dinners

9:24

when we re did the study last year only one in five american families have

9:29

sit-down dinners together

9:31

an american progress family values

9:33

you can have family values he never had family meals together

9:37

i think many of life's puzzles can be solved by simply understanding

9:40

are all kinds of spective and that apartments

9:43

lots of conflict we have with people's really

9:46

the conflict in different on perspectives one sure we have gotten

9:49

stop making negative attributions like you're dumb or your child a short

9:53

abt you pick a date or if you're a card carrying

9:56
