I just had this thought about the saying about spending time. If you think about it our money is the main currency we have. Most people work off a time basis, be it annual, or hourly it all comes back to time. The money we have shows how much time we put into having money.

I feel like a lot of people don't see this and see money as the ultimate currency because it's tangible, so they spend all their time working for money which in all reality means nothing. I feel like all we have, that no one should be able to take away from us is time.

Its just a saying..


Yeah I understand that, but the thing is in order to get money you have to put your time into a job, and how you spend your time is ultimately where your happiness is. I don't know how to explain it because I'm super depressed right now, but I could make ti make sense if I were in a better mood.

You can't give someone time in exchange for goods or a service. I see what you are getting at though.

Basically what I'm trying to say is that you get money by putting your time into something, like say an hourly wage, you get paid 7.25 an hour. I feel like it would show up more accurate when comparing economic climates of different eras by using time, by saying like in order to buy a house in the 30's to X hours vs. buying a house in the 00's took Y hours, instead of dollars because time isn't going to change like a dollar amount does.

In the big picture you can though, because in the big picture you exchange your time for tangible dollars, which you exchange for goods and services.

The point is, the employer is paying you to work for a certain amount of time. If your ****ing about, you still have the right to be paid. So in the end its costing the business because your not completing all tasks assigned.

Or was that what you meant?

EDIT: I think i'm way off, i'm just going to sit in the corner now

Joint, pass it.

And, hey, time = money. Everybody knows that.

EDIT: incase nobody gets my sense of humour, it was a joke.

I'm a funny guy.
