Good thread for the erbb! As a guy nearing 40 and seeing the scales tip, I vote for time.

I like Sussles and Random Guys posts.

I am still on track to exit the corporate world in 2022 and embark on generating my own income through entrepreneurship. THe anticipated results fo this will be a reduction in income (ok with me) but an increase in time!

Making $$$ from my own businesses will be empowering and I can be the judge on where the balance between money and time should lay. And the nice thing is I can fluctuate this with change of seasons, demand on my businesses, etc. I expect to eventually make a name for myself where I can pick and chose jobs based on how lucrative and enjoyable they will be.

hulling, mostly...
All this talk of Wim Hoff and his cold therapy techniques got me thinking of the irony of first world folks, bank accounts ripe full, working their lives away to go home and pay to do what poor folks do everyday for free....

Take a cold shower.

There's a reason people spend their lives slaving away at the grindstone, normally it is not to get in shape like Conan in the movie. It is however to be able to afford luxuries.

Gets me every time... Rich folks throwing luxuries out the window in order to behave like poor folks.

you can always get lost/more money from a variety of ways
you can never get back lost time
those who have lived every minute of their life to the fullest have the richest of lives.

Yeah, sure
But have you ever done a family ski/snowboard trip for a few days with no money?
Personally, I don’t need a lot of stuff, but som of the tings I like to do with my time cost more money than someone with no money can afford
Balance
The elusive ever changing goal
I agree. Just got back from a week in Jackson Hole with the whole family. Very expensive week. Luckily, my company balances time off and income very well.

Same, just not the Jackson hole part. At this stage in my time with the company, I’ve got like 6 weeks PTO. and with remote work still voluntary until at least summer time, I’ll even put in A few work days from Nica. I think that is a decent work life balance trade off

I see you opening a Glamping Resort in your future.

And as far as time vs. money, you can always earn money back but you don't get that time back.

I need to point out that he wrote those songs when he was in his twenties. He's written some good ones in his 60's too. This one's a bit maudlin but I've always liked it, especially the slide bits.

time is more important than money,
but money can buy you time.

get the balance right...
This is it in a nutshell. I'd rather have money, given that and 35 years of a working life. If you really need the time but have the money, that's a lot easier than having time but needing money, if you get my drift. Of course you don't want to build a lifestyle that is dependent on your working insane hours to finance it, but I know some people who love that...

I used to accompany the Mrs's to the clinic when she was doing Chemo in her early 50s. I would trip on the people who
were willing to put up with that who had 20+ years on her.

Just a little more time... that's what they wanted. Didn't matter what they had to go through to get it.
