Is money more important than time to you?
If you’ve answered ‘Yes’ to this question, don’t feel bad. In reality, most people feel that they should be more motivated by money – not by time. However, it’s my firm belief that time is more important than money.
Let me explain.
In the last year, I’ve become good friends with one of our neighbours. Like me, he’s interested in achieving big things, and shares my passion for continuous self-improvement, helping humanity, mankind betterment and loving excellent level of life.
When i see couple of people, earning only money , become money making machine. They admitted the role was challenging, but it was rewarding for him, too. (A hint that he was earning good mone)
The more times we met up, the more he became open about his job and his life.
“I love my job work but the pressures of daily life are starting to become overwhelming,” he told me recently. “There are never-ending tasks such as laundry, housework, grocery shopping, cooking, dog walking. I used to have time for these things, but as I’ve climbed the career ladder, I’ve found myself spending more and time at work, and less time at home.”
He continued: “I may have to rethink my career to get some normality back in my life.”
Listening to my friend open his heart on this topic triggered a deep desire to help him out. If he already felt like this, I couldn’t imagine what would happen when he finally started a family.
Fortunately, I had some experience as a life coach in this area, which meant that I was quick to come up with a suggestion. money can bring money but time cannot bring time. once the time is gone means gone. no return formula and you have to pass from planet only one time.
i repeat, you have to pass from earth , only one time.
i am not asking for massive change, over night change, and immediate actions.
Can you live this life second time ????
“You don’t need to completely rethink your career. Why not start small first? You can use some of the money you’re earning to hire a dog walker and house cleaner. I’d suggest also paying for a laundry service and having your groceries delivered to your home. By investing your money into time, you’ll feel much freer than before. Time will become your friend!”
To be honest, it was hard to read his initial reaction to my suggestion, as he didn’t offer any comments on it. And, he didn’t ask me any questions. However…
The next time I saw you with smile and at ease of life.
As you can see from the story above, sometimes it takes an outside perspective to find the solutions to our problems. And focusing exclusively on money, can often lead to a problem with time. Namely, a lack of time!
Highly-successful individuals know something about this issue that the majority of people don’t.
