Time. Money. They say time is money. I’m sure they refer to how the using up of time translates to the production of money. Yes. This is a plausible explanation, and very often, it implies that the more money you have, the less time you have for yourself. Whether this is a profitable tradeoff is up to each individual to determine for herself.
I have observed that those who wish to be in almost absolute control of the usage of their time are on the increase daily such that even when they rake in tons of money when the rates are broken down to mere seconds, they still complain occasionally about how time is never enough. On the other hand, those who make little money but have quality time to do stuff with meaning become frustrated when their efforts go down the drain daily. In short, finding a balance is more often than not a pipe dream.
And so the question often arises if the ‘seeming’ wise saying: “We do what we have to do so that we can do what we want to do” is binding to all and sundry. I’d say again, it’s about what suits you… ‘the shoe that fits John pinches Joe.’
In the end when all is considered, THE GRASS IS NOT ALWAYS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE!
