Time is an asset we all wish to possess, the value of which cannot be compared to any other asset (Zimbardo & Boyd, 2008). Time is an essential part of life, a medium in which we spend our life. At the same time, it is one of several essential dimensions of our observable world that significantly influences the shaping of our existence. It is quite clear why time attracts and keeps the attention of scientists who wish to understand and explore nature, role, and significance of time during the human life cycle.
