We often hear people say ‘Time is money’. And yes, very often, the time we use is to make money.
However, if you give or spend 10 euros, 100 euros, or whatever the amount (or currency), you will soon or later get them back. We all work hard and will make money again.
But what about time? Every second, every minute, every hour and every day we spend is gone as soon as it is over. I read an article that mentioned that ‘Eighty-five percent of workers worldwide admit to hating their jobs when surveyed anonymously’. So I started to wonder: is it really what people want to do, waste their time on something they hate? What about people who stay in a relationship that do not make them happy? What about spending time with ‘friends’ who show jealousy and pull you down as soon as you are moving forward? What about the time wasted watching all these TV shows that do not teach you anything but whose aim is just to entertain and keep you ignorant?
So, no, to me, time is not money. It is the most valuable asset we have and this is probably the only area where we truly are all equal. We all have 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week.
So don’t waste your time on things (or people) that do not make you happy. Don’t waste your time on things that do not bring you closer to your goals.
Make sure you do something you love, find your life purpose.
Spend time with people who love and appreciate you.
Spend your time wisely and purposefully.
Because you can never get back that second, minute, hour or day. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. And there is no money in the world that can buy these precious moments back.
