Report: Giving Time Can Give You Time
Re: Michael Norton
Mogilner, Norton and Chance conducted a series of experiments comparing time given to time wasted, time spent on oneself, and a windfall of time received unexpectedly (for example, a cancelled meeting). Their findings suggest that spending time on others not only makes people feel as if they have more time, it can lead them to commit to giving more time in the future.
