Transcription here:

No matter your position, power, or wealth, I think we all agree that we wish we could somehow get more time. The importance of time and our fascination with it is the subject of everything from pop culture movies to profound philosophy, and everything in between. Some that come top of mind are Marty McFly from Back to the Future and a short saying from Seneca, a Roman Stoic Philosopher and Statesman: Life, if well lived, is long enough. No matter your feelings about it though, we all likely wish we had more of it at one point in our lives. So how do we get more time in our lives?
