Machines

Maybe, the reason we have such a hard time adapting to our machines as the instruments for controlling time, is that, our machines can't match our capabilities.  For example, one of the problems in machine learning is that, I can identify a picture of myself from a group of photos; a computer can't do that yet.  Its not so much that we do not like to conserve resources and maximize efficiency at the same time; it's just that very often, conserving resources becomes more important for survival.  Machines will evolve faster than us and therefore there will be a point in time when things will get nice.
