The Value of Time
Not all uses of time are equal, and this simple truth can make a big difference in life. People who spend their time doing more profitable work make more money. People who spend their time investing in others build better relationships. People who spend their time creating a flexible career enjoy more freedom. People who spend their time working on high-impact projects contribute more to society. Whether you want more wealth, more friendship, more freedom, or more impact, it all comes down to how you spend and value your time.
If you're like me, you probably want the things listed above (friendship, freedom, impact) and others too (health). But you can't have everything at once, so you need to understand how to effectively manage the tradeoffs that you face on a day-to-day basis.
Let’s understand how to get the most out of your time starts with knowing—in exact terms—what your time is worth.
