Changing how we weigh things is easier than changing our fundamental understanding of time, dates, and timeline of history.

Like he said, time is personal. It would uproot so many milestones that we would lose a great deal of our own identity. Perhaps when we travel the stars will something like metric time take hold.

Perhaps not. The time synchronization for the deep space telemetry in the solar system is being set up using our current time system.

It already is.
Metric system was derived from natural observable measurements. Be that not not that accurate at the time.
Time was derived the same way.

We'll have to change the time and metric system when we join the United Federation of Planets.

Time divisions; 60 minutes, 60 seconds, actually come from the ability to use 5 fingers of one hand and the 12 knuckles of the other to count to 60. IIRC, it was taken from the ancient Sumerians. 8O
