Let’s discuss a phenomenon I’ve been noticing in our society. I just don’t understand the point of setting your clock 5 minutes fast to ‘trick’ yourself into being on time. Really? Does it help you to leave your house any sooner? Don’t you know which clocks in your house are accurate and which ones are fast, and therefore plan your time accordingly? Consequently still making you just as late as you would have been? Don’t you look at your incorrect clock and mentally calculate the actual time, thus wasting more time than if the clock was simply set to the right time?
Do you suffer from this bizarre-chronic-wish-you-were-on-time-but-just-can’t-ever-seem-to-get-out-the-door-on-time? Is there an explanation? Do you really feel that changing the time on your clock will affect the outcome? Please, defend yourself. I’m very curious. Let’s discuss.
