Time and Money!!

What’s your preference?

Time or Money?

When you have to choose one among this what would you choose?

Just for instance, you paid 10K for some classes but then you find them of no use, you would still for the sake of money “keep wasting your time” or would rather skip it?

You know you could reach your home in 10 mins by auto and then could relax for ½ an hour, on the other hand reaching by bus would take around 30 mins? What would be your preferences?

Time is priceless and can never be bought!!! Yup until and unless some “BHAI's “ ghoda(gun) is on your head and you asking for “some time” to arrange money?

Time is always sidelined, or rather money most of the times does takes preferences!!!

Now talking in terms of IT industry, I guess they don’t care for money(Thats a general statement, I have seen many miser's as well), people prefer “udankhatola(flight)” rather then train, until and unless you are helpless and there is no airport in your city. People would rather give 40 bucks extra just to skip long queues and get booking online. And many more instances….

Don’t know if generalization could be made, or choice could be made. It is more of situation dependent, but choice is rather very difficult!!! Time or Money…??

Time is Money or Money is Time!!!

Time is Money in the Corporate world. Not in LIFE.

Cos, think abt this:

Imagine u hv a very ill loved-one who's got only few days to live. Wud u rather go to work and earn ur MONEY or spend some TIME with this person?

Imagine ur the mother of a lil baby who's just born. Wud u rather put that baby in Day-care and go to work to earn MONEY, or wud u spend ur TIME with the baby as it needs u in it's first few years?

It all depends on the individual's priorities.

But for me, Time isnt Money. It's Quality.

i supopose both r imp. maybe time has a slight edge.

circumstances wud probably decide tho' trend is 2 throw money around , now that its available in plenty :)

time is money, money is time :) true.
For me Time comes first. If there is something that i can achieve in a shorter time but spending a little extra then i would do that.

But say i need a drivers license and if i go through legal sources it will take me half a day and if i bribe someone it would take me one hour..I would Wait and go through legal sources...Money is not so important but where/how its used is very important to me.

I hope i made some sense :)

Cool one. Time or money? It all depends, you know.

Sometimes money can be used to BUY more time such as..

Pay the baby sitters more money and spend more alone time with your spouse.


Pay a lot of money for medical treatment so that you can buy more time for an ailing family member on their death bed.

Thought provoking. :)

Well its a quite subjective issue as u said....

Its more dependent on circumstances/situation....

Also it depends upon your purchasing power... how much you earn

harshasrisri said...

comfort is important... if time is abundant and u have nothing to do with it, waste it... thats what u'll do anyway... similarly for money too... only thing is... proper choice has to be made... which to waste and which to conserve at crunch times...

Chakoli said...

@keshi :))

BUt if that person cud be saved by money... i guess u wud rather be out and searching for options :)

In corporate world...
thats what mama's do..
leaving a child... they do it :(((

I agree one cannot generalize...but somehow... what I ahve seen is that people prefer money most of d times then time :((

Read last 3 now. For Dreamzzzzzzz, have not been chased by an Arabian Horse with Prince Charming on it's back?

For Affair, very interesting to spice up things.

This one, one must realise value of time and use it optimumly.

Take care

well lot depends on the the amont of money i have :P
both are important ..Time has a little edge as time cant be earned again .. money could be,...
for example i would rather get an auto in order to save my time if i have some usefull work ..

and similarly i would rather not join any classes that would be of no use to me ...
a little secret .. i never went to tutions ,coaching classes till now ..
saved lot of money and time .... :P lol ...
wasted lot of that time by playing cricket though :D

Reema said...

Well for me, Money is the means to save time..like u gave the example of auto. I prefer to spend to get comfort and hence save time by not getting tensed, to do other things etc. :) Nice post.
