285: Time has inflation and appreciation

I spotted a man wearing a t-shirt today that said “Time is money” on it.

On its own, that’s a terrible trade:

  • Time, to money, to time again: To sell your time for money, only to sell your money for time again later in life, is a lousy deal when you’re…
  • Factoring in inflation: Depending on how long you leave it and how long your lifestyle and genetics afford you, the time you buy back again might not be the same as the time you sold in the first place.
  • Making it worth it: To make a winning trade, ensure your trade includes mission, contribution, and purpose.

This way, when you buy time back again, it’ll have appreciated faster than its rate of inflation: you’ll have made a difference.
