Is time really money?

Nov. 25: What do you think we could all do better with if we looked at it with a child’s eyes?

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you are all having a good week, whether you celebrated Thanksgiving or not. I just got back home from Black Friday shopping with my sister and was able to get quite a few cool things; things not only for myself but for some of my family members as well.


People always seem to say “Time is money.” When we’re children we really have no concept of time. We are awake when it’s light and asleep when it’s dark. We have no idea how much time has passed when we are playing, sleeping, watching TV, spending time with family.

Now that we’re older our lives are controlled by time. We wake up at 6, are at work from 9-5, eat dinner at 7, go to bed at 10 and repeat. Our lives are constant schedules and we find comfort in having a schedule because we know where and when we have to do things. We base everything off of time and schedules.

Why can’t we look at our day with a child’s eyes? Why can’t we live without the constant need for schedules and worries about being late. Why must we be consumed by schedules and eyes glued to clocks all day in anticipation for the beginning and end of events. Our lives revolve around scanning watches and writing in planners and as much as I wish they didn’t, I  guess time really is money.

  1. Schedules are SO bittersweet. It stinks because as an adult we just simultaneously fall into that full time job work routine and at times it is comforting bc you know what youre doing day to day and know at the end of the week you’ll be walking about with money but I know when I take like a mini vacation or something I realize how much I’m missing out on because of the constant schedule I have to follow. I always wonder who was the guy who decided that a full time job was going to be M-F 9-5, it just ain’t right! I love to stop and think about what if we had no set schedule how much better and or worse life would be….. good food for thought post!
