How do we view different lengths of time against infinity?

When time is viewed as eternity,a second or a day or a decade will look like meaningless .But in realty we do not view time as eternity but as short or medium span of time measured in terms of our own present activities or those we will perform in the next week or month or year.For example we rarely look beyond a year when we are students pursuing college degree or beyond a month when we are likely to travel to another place in a month’s time. Our view of time as reference is therefore purely tied up with our present activities or activities which we have scheduled during the near future.

The second noteworthy thing is that we do not have one single referential time but three or four frames of reference ,the shorter ones merging into the longer ones at any point of time.This depends upon the multiple activities being performed by us in varying time frames.
