I admit. I’m not great at making money. Does that mean I’m poor? Not necessarily. Does that mean I’m rich? Depends on how you define rich.
All I know is the most valuable currency to me is my time. The ability to control my schedule is what matters because I can prioritize what I spend my time doing. The other night my wife and I had a great conversation about personal and professional goals. I shared with her when I have talks with others, either the same age as me or older, somewhere in our discussion spending time with your kids while they’re young comes up. I thought about how much time I spend with my daughter who recently turned two and it brings a smile to my face.

Today’s most valuable currency isn’t money, it’s time.
Equally distributed to all, yet maximized wisely by few.
In the article, Flexibility: The New Definition of Success, flexibility and autonomy is what’s most desired.
It’s hard to control how much money you make, but you can be very deliberate how you choose to spend your time.
Speaking from experience, as a Lifestyle Entrepreneur money isn’t my main motivator, freedom and flexibility of schedule is. Every time I get down about how much money I could be making, I look at my daughter and wife next to me. What if I was working 80+ hours a week? Would I be happy? Would I truly know my wife and daughter?
Money is a means to an end.
Time is an end in itself.
It can be argued that money buys time, but does it really?
My point isn’t aim to be poor, but instead question what you’re really after.
If your goal is flexibility, then look at your current situation and ask yourself, “How can I free up more time to invest in the things I love?“
