How much is your time worth?


 ‘Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.’  Steve Jobs

There’s an old saying, that ‘time is money’. Wrong. So wrong.

 Time cannot be calculated in money. If you waste money, there are usually ways to get it back, sometimes tenfold. You may find more money, you may inherit it, you may be struck by a profitable idea etc. 

 Waste time, and it’s gone forever. That’s it. You cannot get it back. Nor can you tell when your time in this life will be up for you.

 So if there’s something you are determined to accomplish in this life, don’t waste time. Work towards accomplishing it every day.

 Yes, you do have to be able to survive while working towards your project, and for that you need money. But don’t let making money become more important than what you want to accomplish. No matter how exhausted you are from making money, don’t let any single day pass by when you’re not getting one step closer to accomplishing your goal.

 The time is now, and it’s priceless.
