Time Is Money

Time Is Money

We often use the phrase “Time is Money” to depict the importance of time in our life. But, is it an accurate analogy? Because, unlike money, the time once spent can never be earned back. It is like a one-way road with no U-turn.

After a Life itself, time is the second most precious thing in the world. The best thing about time is that it is unbiased. You’ve got the same 24 hours in your day like any other living being. It changes for no one. And the worst thing about time is that it isn’t your friend. It doesn’t stop or slow down for anyone.

An average human life expectancy is around 75 years. This is the total amount of time you have which includes your schooling, higher studies, job, sleep, and all other daily chores. Though you can skip some of these activities, others can’t be skipped at all.

Going to work is necessary to earn money and have food and shelter for your family. Sleeping is mandatory to stay healthy. Similarly, eating, cleaning, grooming, and parenting are also essential for a balanced life. All these tasks consume time. So, the question arises, “How much time do you really have?”

Working 8 hours a day for 45 years (from age of 20 till 65) costs 10 years in total. Watching television daily for an hour, using social media for 2 hours, and watching a movie twice a month combined together consume another 9 years of your life. You spend 6 years doing daily household work like cooking, cleaning, etc. Around 4 years are spent eating and drinking. Similarly, 3.5 years on education, 2.5 years on grooming, another 2.5 years on shopping, 2 years on daily travel, and 1.5 years on childcare. Sighs!
