time is money

We've all heard the saying, "time is money" and to a certain degree, that is true. However, today I want to challenge you by saying that time is more important than money.

Why? Because you can always do something to make more money but you can never get time back…NEVER.

Once you fritter away your time on unimportant things, you can never get that time back.An email made its way around about a year ago about a man who gave his son two jars, one empty and one with marbles.

There were enough marbles for the weeks he had left to live (assuming a man's average mortality). He told his son to move one marble to the empty jar every Saturday so that he'd realize that he could never, ever get that time back.

Yes, the story is a bit hokey but it does have a point. I'm practical so I like to think of it like this…

Divide your weekly salary by the number of hours you usually work per week. That's your HOURLY rate.Now, when you spend an hour surfing the internet, watching TV, reading blogs when you should be working, visualize yourself throwing that money in the trash!

If you're very frugal like me, it'll shock you and make you realize the value of your time!
