Time & Money

Time and money. Time or money. Time versus money. 

They are a paradox together and story half told apart. 

Which one should we value more? Which one do we need more? Can we have more of both? 

Who knows? Who cares?

You should. 

Money is the lubricant of life. Time is life itself. The two work hand and hand together and apart but always together as one. The relationship of time to money and money to time is as old as time itself. But, you could never use money to buy time. And, you could never sell time to make money. Yet money’s value will change over time. But, if one could stop time, then money would hold its value, at least for the time being.

Money may make you happy. That is the thought of many and the realization of few. Money is the hope of a tomorrow that is better than today. Money will solve our problems and cure our ills. Money will make us happy. And the chase of money becomes the chase of life, a race without a finish line and a chase to catch the wind. It ends the day you realize that life is about time and not money.

It is about the time you spend with family and friends. It is about the time you spend with your lover.

It is about the time you spend with you, alone. 

It is about the time you spend with your children for that is the time that slips away and makes you wonder where the time went. But, before you can think too long, you’ve run out of time. 

But, probably not money.

So, the question remains, time or money?

I have chosen time.

What do you choose?

  1. Very deep Sean. I've never given it much consideration until recently. I think age and health are what influences the answer. I must choose time. It has a value that so many including me take for granted until they are forced to. Enjoyed the article. Very thought provoking.
