Humanity is obsessed with time, even to the degree that it has become a commodity. In an essay titled “Advice to a Young Tradesman, Written by an Old One” (21 July 1748), Benjamin Franklin famously stated:

However, in the effort to control and protect “our time,” many justify the neurotic management of their time.
