Time Versus Money

June 25, 2017

Hey guys, day 33 here in Denver about to leave. I am going back to Salt Lake, which will be nice because I have been out of the house for quite some time. I was back in Salt Lake for a few days, and it was Vanessa’s birthday. Then as some of you know, she decided to go on a trip. So she’s been out, and I’ve been out for about two weeks.

 

 

Anyway, I wanted to bring day 33 real quick before I hit the road with my buddy Cameron, who is currently studying. We just came across all these job sites. There are so many cranes out here doing some construction. We were thinking about the time it takes to do construction. So day 33, we are talking about time versus money. The two different mindsets that it takes to understand and utilize these resources. Ultimately, it is looking at time as a tool.

So I’ll tell you a quick story. Last summer, I went to one of the amusement parks here, which is called Elitch Gardens. There were big roller coasters, a beautiful day, and the lines were crazy. When we first got there, I stood up and asked the lady at the very front of the line how long she’d been there, it had been over an hour.

So I was like, wait a minute. We’re going to do this for an hour. That means we can only go on like, five rides, have to take a break, grab some lunch, this is not going to be fun. Found out there’s a Fast Pass. You pay an extra $35 per person, and we were able to skip every line.

Now, the mindset I needed to shift to do what was difficult because I used to have this scarcity money thing. Around my mind. It was like I always wanted to hold on to money. I didn’t want to let it flow. So I would always say, well, I’ll save the money and use my time.

That mindset would mess me up because I get into a scarcity mentality and a lack of mentality, looking at my bank account. The focus was all wrong in looking at the bank account instead of looking at the clock. Looking at the clock allowed me to stop worshipping money and focus on my time. I am not going to spend my time on that. I would way rather spend my money. What do I value more, my time?

So when the opportunity after working on this, then that opportunity for buying the Fastpass came up. It was a no-brainer at that point. I was like, Yes, I want the time. Here’s my money. I bought all the fast passes. We went on twelve rides in four hours. As we were leaving the park, a new family was walking in. The husband and wife had four kids, there were six of us.

Anyway, it was like one or two. There’s still plenty of the day left, so we gave them the fast passes. It was great. You should try the Fast Pass. It’ll save you a ton of time. The difference in the mindset is what I’m wanting to talk about with day 33 here. Time is the reason. When you are coming to a fork in the road, and you’re trying to decide on different paths on what to do.

What would the person who values the time do? How would they act and go in that direction? Valuing the time letting the money flow in and out. Don’t hold on to the money. Money is not the reason, money is the tool. If you’re trying to execute something, let the money be the tool. I’m sure you got to put time into projects. I get that you got to put the time in, but it’s not the reason isn’t to save money. It’s to gain more time.

That was today’s lesson. When it comes to time, think about these job sites that are going on right here. Think about the guys that are down there, doing the concrete doing the foundation, doing the building? What’s their time like? I mean, how long does this building take to go all the way up? So who has more control over time, the guy who owns the project, or the guys that are working on the construction site for this project?

So it’s much faster to raise and control than it is to earn and own. So we’ll leave you with that thought. We’ll check back in with you guys soon. Thanks for hanging out. Good to see you. Thanks for playing. All right, beautiful people. Have a wonderful day. You are safe. Sunday Funday. Take back your existence, or die like a punk. Peace out.
