Time Is Not Money

Contrary to popular belief, time is not money; it's far more valuable.  Time can be used to make money, but money cannot be used to buy time. Money comes with value attached to it. Times does not.

How much value have you attached to YOUR time?

When we talk about "hourly rates" of workers, we are being both shortsighted and insensitive to the value of their time. The truth is, an employer can never pay you what your time is worth - whether hourly, monthly or yearly. An employer can, however, help you place focus on the use of your time. It's up to you to assess whether the value of your time is commensurate with your pay (i.e., how you benefit both professional and personally from the use of your time while working).

Yes, there is a symbiotic relationship between time and money, but no, time is not money. Both can be spent foolishly, but only one (time) cannot be replaced. Time governs our lives. Money (if we allow it) can rule it. All the money in the world will not and cannot stop time, or turn back the hands of time to reverse decisions we may come to regret

We don't need more time...we need more awareness of the value of time, which can change the meaning of your life, starting now.
