In the talk, Dr. Selin Malkoc suggests that we need to change the way we think about time. Instead of viewing it as a resource to be maximized, we should view it as something to be enjoyed. This will help us to be happier and to make the most of our leisure time.

  • 00:00:00 In this TEDxYearlingRoad talk, Dr. Selin Malkoc challenges the way most people view time, arguing that it should be seen as a resource to be maximized. She provides three examples illustrating how this mindset affects how people behave. First, when taking her now husband on a first date to meet her family, she notes that he acted "splendidly" while her Turkish friends gave him a strong liquor raka. However, when he got stuck in a mosque on a Friday prayer, he made fun of the experience and didn't bother to share it with his hosts. Second, when her family planned a vacation to a beach, her husband was unenthused. He couldn't understand why they weren't doing anything else besides just sitting on the beach. Finally, when they went to a park, he wanted to be productive and go on walks and play sports, but her Turkish friends wanted to relax and just sit in the sun. These examples demonstrate how different cultures approach time differently, and how one's mindset about time can affect their overall enjoyment of life.
