Those who have leisure time to spend pursuing their passions and dreams experience the real wealth in life. John D. Rockefeller, Sr. was a man in command of incredible amounts of money, but he once remarked, “I know of nothing more despicable and pathetic than a man who devotes all the hours of the waking day to the making of money for money’s sake.”
in other words, knowing how to spend time is a more valuable skill than knowing how to make, manage, invest, and spend money. Those entrepreneurs who want to be truly successful have to devote themselves not only to the accumulation of financial assets but also to a savvy mastery of their precious and irreplaceable time.
Those who know how to manage, budget, and save time – rather than letting it manage them – will always find it easier to make extra cash. But ironically and unfortunately, most people are so busy making a living that they do not have time to really make a significant amount of money. They instead settle for an hourly or monthly wage. Entire careers are spent helping enrich our bosses and employers. But while employees may succeed in their particular roles and jobs they often fail in the more important and profound task of living a full and rewarding life that enables one to enjoy time with family, friends, hobbies, and dreams.
