Time is free. But waste it and see if it feels free. Money is not free. It will cost you time.
But time is free. So, how do you get out of this vicious circle?
Well, I think you’ve got to decide what’s more important to you. Time? Or money? And don’t misread that. I didn’t say either one of them is NOT important. But which one is more so?
Here are some perspectives for comparison.
You can’t make more time. No matter how hard you work. And no matter how well you take care of yourself. You and I have time limits. (I hate those, don’t you?)
And even though there’s virtually no limit to how much money you can make, there ARE limits as to how much you can buy with it. That’s true for both rich and poor people. And I read, somewhere, that you can do more with a day off than with a day’s pay.
Wow, I like that.
The idea is that…well…ideas you get (and information you can load into your brain) from taking a day off are way more lasting and valuable than what money can buy. Have you noticed that in your own life?
Plus, no amount of money you ever make will ever be able to buy you even a second time. Matter of fact, I don’t recall ever seeing a store that sold time. Hmm…could that be a clue?
Yes, it’s a fact. You can lose every dime to your name and spring back and make more. But you can never get back the time you spend. Even if you spent your time wisely.
And here’s an interesting perspective. You need time to spend money. But you don’t need money to spend time.
Whoa. That’s deeper than it sounds.
Billionaires have more money than one lifetime even needs. So, in a sense, they don’t have enough time for their money (not such a bad problem to have by the way). So, how important do you think they believe time is? Yeah, there have been lots of quotes from rich people who, at the end of their life, wished they had more time.
Here’s one more perspective.
There’s an old saying that goes, “Time heals all wounds.” I think I’d leave out the “all” part. But essentially it’s true. Because your body needs time to heal physical wounds. And emotional and mental wounds can be healed with the passing of time and increased wisdom.
So, basically, to coin an old credit card commercial, time is priceless. So valuable you can’t put a price on it. Because time is free for a limited time.
And that brings up why I bring it up.
Because, unfortunately, too many entrepreneurs and business owners spend a huge amount of their precious time doing things that won’t make them more money. And certainly won’t buy more time. That’s because they don’t automate, delegate, and systemize.
And that’s why I’ve spent over 20 years of my life helping as many as I could get off that hamster wheel. And get plugged into a System that can help them spend time more efficiently and make more money.
It can be liberating. To say the least. But even investing in a tried and proven System can be too expensive for entrepreneurs and business owners who want the easy, quick riches. And many of them don’t understand that working the System means you’ll get your clients and customers to pay for your investments. With willing and open hands.
If that still doesn’t make enough sense, then read more about my RondaReady System at the link below. I believe the ones who understand the time and money comparisons will wanna jump all in.
