Suppose you worked half as much as you currently do, and made half what you currently make. Where would you cut back? Would you downsize your house, your car? Would you eat out less, save less, get rid of cable? Whatever the case, think of all the free time you would suddenly have. What kind of things would you do? Taking a walk is free. Volunteering is free. Spending more time with the people you love is free. Choosing to make less, and thereby choosing to spend less, doesn’t make you lazy or irresponsible.
Time is NOT money. Time is time. And you have more control over how you spend it than you’ve been taught to think.
