We all think that money is what limits us. If only I had $10,000 I then could finally do the things I want to do. But is money the limiting factor? I’m not sure.
Money is a limited resource but time is the thing that we can never get back. Even if I had to declare bankruptcy, I know I could find a way to dig myself out of the financial hole. But if I spent 5 years of your life in prison, that time is gone forever.
These are both extreme examples. They show how most of us spend too much time worrying about money and not enough time thinking about time.
It’s much easier to focus our stress on money, but maybe we should spend some time concentrating on the most limited resource we have - time.
