What's More Valuable? Time or Money?

If you think about it, you will realize the answer is time.  The sad part, is that people squander time more than they squander money.  As an example, just think TV . . .

Time is more valuable because you only get so much of it-- time ticks away and is gone forever.  Think of time as a decaying asset.  Money on the other hand, can made and remade.

Time should be guarded and used sparingly.  What do you do with your time?  Do you spend it:

Be frugal with your time . . . it is more valuable than money.

    One way to think about time and TV is that you are in effect converting your time (in front of commercials) to make money for others (the networks and performers).

    Perhaps the entertainment value is worth it, and perhaps not. We all vote, one way or the other, with the on/off button and the channel changer.

    Would any of us, on our death bed, wish that we had spent more time watching TV?

      Clair, your last thought is a powerful way to approach any "quality" time management decision-- On you deathbed, what would you wish to have spent more time on . . . ?

    I see most TV (cable, dish, other pay options) as a double-killer. You're not only wasting time watching it, you're wasting money paying for it!

      Solid point.  I use it as background noise as I use the computer or read a book-- there are very few programs that I actually watch. 

      Here's a peace and quiet tip: Put on educational programs-- it usually clears the room of kids . . .
