Hearing talk American think tanks are now saying time is more important than money. Beautifully equal in that there are 24 hours in a day.

Each of us feels a lack of time. All the energy is invested in work and everyday worries. A perfectly logical question may come to mind: are we really doing important things, and are we wasting precious time? The more I live on earth, the more clearly I see that time is money, but money is also time. We were taught that the essence of money is "storing valuables". I struggled to figure out how to make money while at home. I was seriously interested in earning money in games, because during the pandemic, it was really possible to devote time to some things that did not interest me before the pandemic.I was able to easily figure it out and start making money.

On furlough I don't have a lack of time - I've got a shitload of it - but I do have a lack of money, with the Government prepared to only pay me 80% of my wage.

When I was working as a consultant as a sub-contractor, the guy who was I was getting my contracts from talked to me about opportunity cost. The principle is that everything you do that was not on the clock costs you your hourly rate. If you thought it was not worth wasting that money to do that activity, then you should consider it a waste of time and not do it. It changed the way I look at stuff and it still has value even now that I am a salaried employee.

My feeling is you should make as much money as you can while you can. Never know when you might get sick or hurt and the cash flow dries up. Or the government regulates your entire industry down the drain.
