On ‘Time is Money’ concept
1. If you have bills to pay and not enough money to pay them indefinitely without working, then time is money.
2. If you have plenty of money to suit you for the rest of your life then time definitely isn’t money.
For most people in category 1, spending extra money means allotting future time to earn not only the money to buy whatever is needed but also every penny above that. So if you need a laptop and a $999 laptop does the trick, spending $1,399 means allotting future hours to pay for that. Thus pushing you further down the road as being a #1 type. Every dollar you don’t spend that you could have spent on luxury, leads you further to being #2 and being able to travel the globe happily without working.
