Is Time, Money?
People often say time is money. In fact money is time. Let’s do it better than that. Money is a resource with which you buy time and this is why. As a society, we like to get paid hourly or we hire people on a per hour rate; we buy their time. Then we expect during that paid time period to achieve certain goals with specific skill sets which can have monetary value. And with that monetary value that’s created, we sell services; this is how businesses work. Money is Time. We also invest a lot of money in technology and gadgets so they can help us save time. The money spent on technology we use to buy time for ourselves, whether to to do more work or for leisure. The challenge is to see how you are spending your currency of time and what you are buying in return. This currency, in its basic unit, comes in finite supply. Basic unit such as years, months and weeks to even days, hours and seconds. If you are a worker who is getting paid hourly and let’s suppose you make $20 an hour and you end up spending $10 dollars on a cup of coffee. You just turned half an hour of life unit into a cup of coffee. Was it worth it?
