Time and Money



There are different ways you can interpret that saying, just as there are different ways t..o view time and m.o.n.e.y.

Time is limited. The most you can have is twenty-four hours in a . On the other hand, $ can be unlimited.

Time wasted can never be regained. On the other hand, $ wasted or spent can be earned again.

$ can be earned whereas time cannot be purchased. $ is a commodity for the rich and not for the poor. On the other hand, time is common for everybody.

When people back on their lives, they never wish they could have spent more time in the office. However, they can regret not having spent more time doing things that were important t.o them with those that were meaningful t.o them.

The most important part of this message, however, is that you can always know how much $ you have. However, you never know when your time will be up. So choose wisely.

Would you choose more time or more money? And if you knew your time was limited, would that change your choice?

I have to say that time is way more important to me than money. As we never really know how much time we have. As I learned that recently when my hubby suffered two heart attacks.

Now with money I have been on both sides of the spectrum there and I found that having a lot of money only causes more problems. I would rather be comfortable and happy with the time I have left in my life..

Another great topic for today my friend, I hope your enjoying a relaxing Sunday..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

There are two times a year where our day is not 24 hrs. I spring we only have 23 hrs one day due to daylight savings time kicking in. In fall we get 25 hrs one day when we go back to standard time. We therefore experience time lost and time gained every year.

Para pensarlo... a mi el tiempo ya me pasa más rápido... y aprovecharlo es casi una urgencia. Lo mejor sería poder compartirlo con alguien para que sea más divertido.

It's funny how Mother Nature doesn't see it that way. Clocks are man made. Get rid of them and the days are still the same length regardless of the time of year.

Hmmmm....I know I left that wand around here somewhere!

Time, always - my biggest regret of recent years was making the not unreasonable assumption that my wife would be around for longer than she was, so I did not spend as much time with her as I should have done, more concerned with work and other things .....my mistake, because as you know by now I lost her very suddenly in October 2019 - If I could put the clock back, I would, but that cannot be...to have another chance and not make the same mistake again is my hope.

Seams you can't have both together. When I had the money to do things I wanted to do, I didn't have the time. Now that I am at a point in my life I have the time, I don't have the money. LOL

Ah but you go against the wisdom of our great professors who teach in economics that money is comparatively "scarce." A dollar spent on something is one less dollar that can be spent elsewhere, thus spend wisely!
That said, I choose more time than more money. The value of money depends on what it is spent on. In fact, until it is spent it really is just paper.

I agree, there are positives and negatives on both ends of the spectrum. And you are right, it's better to be comfortable and happy with whatever time you have. It is so precious and outside of our control. Keep safe!

Sharing time with someone else is something many hope to be able to do. Best wishes finding the right person.

Yes, you have previously shared your loss. It's important we recognize and treat life as precious as it is. It can be snatched away from us in a heartbeat. May peace envelope you and you may find what you seek.

Yes, I am aware of what economics says. Finding the right time/money balance is the key.

Refer to the previous comment by Massass1963.
Did you know the highest Canadian denomination currently produced is $100? The $1,000 bill was withdrawn from circulation in 2000. The highest denomination ever produced, was $50,000. (yes I was in the banking industry)

Thanks for circling back to respond. I get the sense you have a list of things you would want to do with your extra time. Something I would use mine for is to travel (once it is safe to do so again).
