today, i spent my lunch hour running errands and grabbing a drive-thru burger, instead of my usual drive home for the purpose of getting out of the building and consuming leftovers. each option is wasteful and efficient in its own way, depending upon which lens you are viewing it through: the concept of time, or the concept of money.
in the comparison of time versus money, intangibility rarely wins [for me, anyway. your mileage may vary]. i wonder, if we set up a register and monthly statement system for time, in parallel to our finances, would we give more thought to how efficiently we spend our time?
