In all of the conversations, writing, and reading that I have done on investing, the concept of time as an asset has always intrigued me.
I have always heard people say that time is the most precious asset of all and that working for oneself, although demanding, is most rewarding because it offers the flexibility of time.
While on my vacation, I visited a friend who works independently in the financial services industry. He works very hard and is very successful, but he values his time. He has a young son and wants to spend as much time with him as possible. It is vital to him that his career allows for that.
My focus has always been on working hard and earning enough money to become financially free. Maybe my focus should be on acquiring flexibility with my time?
If having time and a flexible schedule is what I really desire, maybe I should work backwards?
Maybe I should focus on earning Time not earning Money?
Visiting with my friend this past week has made me realize, for the first time, that my time is valuable and that working for me on my own schedule is of paramount importance. Now I just need to figure out how it can be done!
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to Contact Me or post comments of any suggestions that you have to help me achieve this goal.
Thanks and have an awesome day!
