A friend of mine, whom Roy calls a wisenheimer–someone with opinions on everything–says that a basic principle when faced with ordinary, every day choices is that of time versus money. If your time is in shorter supply than money, solve problems by throwing money at them; outsource all the work you can; do nothing which can be delegated.
However, in a way, those who are rich in time rather than money are more blessed.
Time to make bread, and rich slow-cooked stews; time to hang around the dinner table enjoying them; time for long, slow walks, time to garden, time to grow your own yummy veggies, time to have friends over. Time to enjoy people. Time to be creative and learn how to fix things around the house rather than always paying people to come and paint your walls, and build your stuff.
It is a slower, more peaceful, more creative way of life. I think we will choose it. To be richer in time than money.
