CHICAGO, Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- T-minus 42 days until summer is over! Where did your summer go?
Time expert and Olympic medalist, John K. Coyle will show your audience how and why time accelerates and what to do about slowing it down, and really living forever!
Don't let another day of summer slip through your fingers without booking John K. Coyle for an inspiring interview on reversing the acceleration of time.
"It is possible to manipulate time. You can design your life to experience endless summers again," says John K. Coyle, one of the world's leading experts in innovation and "design thinking." He has been studying how humans' experience the passage of time - "chronoception" - for more than a decade and has uncovered three rules to help slow, stop and reverse the perceived acceleration of time.
John's three rules to manage time perception are:
- Contraction: By reversing routine and creating more emotionally resonant events we slow time.
- Inversion: By recognizing that the way time passes in the present is inverse to how to remember it, we can store more data and create more expansive memories, reversing the acceleration of time passing.
- Expansion: By intentionally designing "event horizon" moments that stop time we can expand summers to last even longer than when we were children.
"Our entire perception of time passing is stored in memory," says Coyle. "Our memories are laid down in specific ways: once you understand how memory works, you can design experiences to maximize 'memory time' and expand your perceptions of the passing of time." "I'm about 15 years into 2016 already and you too can experience the same time dilation if you follow my three rules above."
Elements of this philosophy, mindset and approach are covered in Coyle's book, "The Art of Really Living Manifesto." The book consolidates Coyle's perspectives on time and chronoception into an exploration of the role of cognition and emotion in memory and our perceptions of time, why we feel life is flying by, and what we can do about it, now. "I spent half a lifetime chasing the 1/10 of a second between a gold medal and being an 'also ran' – sometimes you can live a lifetime in a moment."
