We naturally tend to think ahead, so is our psychology mapped to the future? How would you respond to the following question:
When do you feel happier – 3 pm on a Friday, or 9 pm on a Sunday?
Many would say the former, as the weekend is approaching when we’re not shackled up with employment. The irony is that at 3 pm on a Friday afternoon we’re still at work when we’d rather be at home…like at 9 pm on a Sunday evening.
(This is of course forgetting that time is greater than money!)
Maybe our minds live further along the time axis than the rest of us!
