Time and Money – The Tension Between Them

Posted on August 28, 2015 under Entrepreneurs

Time is the only resource we cannot renew.

By the time you finish reading this message you will have expended several moments of your life you can't rewind – so I'll make it short and sweet!  😉

The struggle my clients experience is the tension between time and money.

The deal with money is that we can and will make more of it if we create the proper systems and offerings to attract clients, buyers, and employers.

Typically, when we first begin to make or earn more money, we become time poor. That is until we get straight with our relationship with time.

Realize that you have no more or less time than Oprah, the Pope, and the U.S. President. Time is the great flattener in the world.

I repeatedly hear clients lean on the same excuses about time, which only perpetuates their negative situations.

I don't have the time.

Yes, you do. You simply have not made your goal a priority by saying no to other demands or setting appropriate boundaries.

Now is not the right time.

When is the “right” time, really?!  Are you being arbitrary and avoidant or do you have a tangible reason to delay (i.e. not a story you're telling yourself).

I'll do it later / I'll get to it when…

This one is the most insidious; and it makes me sad. This excuse very slowly, painfully, and regretfully turns into never. It's the death of the thing you truly coveted that never got accomplished or experienced.

Time expires. End of story.

How you spend your time is the single biggest decision you make every day.

Imagine you knew the date you would die.

I seriously doubt it.
