Time is Money ?

This morning I was listening to an interview with Eckart von Hirschhausen, a German physician and comedian, in my favorite morning radio show.

He brought up a valid point: the saying "Time is Money" is certainly not true. Simply consider this: you can gain more and more money, but your time is limited. Thus: time is much more valuable than money

If you look at your calendar at the beginning of the year it hopefully looks quiet blank yet. He came up with the idea to not create any dates in your calendar which would make you feel relieved if that date would go away later on.

Hello, nice article!!!

I think "Lifetime" is limited and we are always against the clock metering the passing time thinking on how to be able to continue in the future, so I agree with you that the expression "the time is money" is limited to a way of thinking of productivity in a period of time, as if everything we do has to be productive or quantified in terms of money, when there are tons of different things that we do that makes us happy but are not productive, in complement of what you are saying that "you can gain more and more money, but your time is limited. Thus: time is much more valuable than money". Yes, time and life is much more precious than money, but nowadays life with money is nicer than without it !

Or like Williem de Kooning, a Durch-born US painter, put it nicely:
The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.

I think 'time is money' is only if you are an employer and you see your employees being productive (+$) or screwing off (-$).
Personally, my time is valuable than money.
