Hands down, I value free time.
Outside of a 9 to 5, I have so much on my plate 7 days a week that my brain never stops working.
Recognition for a job well done is nice but not absolutely necessary for me. If I do something well, the important thing is that I know it. I don’t like the limelight. But of course, if someone tries to take credit for something I did at 100%, that’s another story. With my lack of filters in my older age, I would have no problem publicly pulling out receipts.
And some of you clever readers will point out that money can buy time and that is very true.
But unless you are already wealthy or how found ways to make easy money, most of us have to work more to make more money, thereby having less time.
A vicious circle.
What do you value most: free time, recognition, or money?
