I’ve heard the saying “time is money” my whole life.
I’ve never really got want that meant until the past year or so.
It means your time is valuable. When you exchange your money for something you are saying that whatever you are giving money for is more valuable than that money.
If you are hungry, a meal may be more valuable than keeping ten dollars.
When you need socks, a bag from target is more valuable than keeping 5 dollars.
You weigh the exchange and make the decision.
I’ve been trying to do that with my time lately. Is what I am spending my time doing WORTH giving my time for it?
Sometimes we need to give time for rest (for ourselves). Other times we need to give time as a gift (for others). But other things…if we really think about it, are not worth the transaction.
Its worth weighing the costs. We can get more money. We cannot always get back our time.
