Your Time Is Valuable

Your Time Is Valuable

Your time is valuable. The time you're using right now you will never get back.  That's just the truth. I've never understood why people argue this perspective. Often when others do it's in regards to money value of your time, but even that should be seen as valuable. That's time never replenished, therefore should be awarded however the user of that time wishes. If they chose to base this on hours, skills, or overall self-valued worth, then so be it.
