Time management is accepted as key lifeskill. However, understanding what psychologist Elliot Jaques described as 'time span of discretion', the longest task an individual is capable of undertaking, is even more important. I made this 5 minute animation to explain this concept to my 11-year old son and made some suggestions on ingredients he should cultivate to stretch his time horizon.
This animation was inspired by Paul Saffo's article titled, "Time Span of Discretion', which appeared in the book 'This Will Make You Smarter - New Scientific Concepts to Improve Your Thinking' (Edge 2011 Question).
