This link was sent to me by a Sciral Forums reader. I thought the article made a lot of sense, and confirms what I've always suspected-- time is not exactly money.

Robert,

Thanks for writing Sciral Consistency; I'm looking forward to using it. I'll register soon. Following is an interesting thought on future time availability; perhaps you've seen it:

"Research by two business-school professors reveals that people over-commit because we expect to have more time in the future than we have in the present. Of course, when tomorrow turns into today, we discover that we are too busy to do everything we promised."
