We know about the time value of money, but do we truly understand the investment value of our time? In this unique mind-bending talk, John shares breakthrough ideas on how to re-think your relationship with time. Since our brains process time in a non-linear manner, the value of an increment of time is unrelated to its duration. Using both story-telling and data, John explores how to slow, stop and reverse the perceived acceleration of time, and live summers longer than when you were a kid. This keynote will inspire you to make the most of your talents, life and time. This dramatic and innovative program begins and ends with a video production and spoken word performance of The Art of Really Living Manifesto, a poetic piece about slowing the acceleration of time. The heart of the presentation includes a data-driven and neuroscience-based discussion of the cognitive biases that govern “experiential time” and how time, as we experience it is not linear. It speeds up, slows down, freezes, ore disappears entirely, based on our focus, stimuli and environment. By manipulating our environment and experiences, it is possible to create event horizon moments, where time stands still, relative to the outside world. LEARNING OBJECTIVES As a result of this program you will: • Understand the forces that govern experiential time and how cognitive biases in your brain cause time to accelerate. • Discover actions you can take to manipulate the cognitive biases toward time in your brain and reverse the process of time slipping away. • Learn how to design your life to create intense and memorable experiences that expand - even create time. OPTIONAL ADD-ON FOR DEEPER ENGAGEMENT John offers a working session to explore each of the three laws of experiential time in depth, identifying opportunities to: (1) increase breadth and depth of experiences; (2) seek and create more moments of flow; and (3) conduct a patterns analysis of each individual's most meaningful memories in order to find ways to create "event horizon moments" that expand or even create time.
