Two days ago I got my toilet replaced.
I have now a new shiny one where I had a cracked rusty old toilet before.
I bought the toilet 1 month ago at a store nearby but I kept it boxed… until 2 days ago.
During that time I seriously considered doing the job of replacing the old toilet for the new one.
Don’t confuse me. I am no plumber.
But I am curious and heard women are attracted to guys who know how to do these kinds of jobs. (As a hobby, guys. Not full time!)
I considered it for a while (read: days). But then I thought:
How much time will it take to replace the toilet?
I’ve never done it before, neither I’ve seen anyone do it.
I thought and thought some more.
And finally got to the simple conclusion: I have no idea. Can’t even make a rough estimation.
And now comes the reason why I’m writing this email…
How much is your time worth?
I’m sure I could figure things out and replace the toilet. But it would take me days, for sure.
And when I think about it I get uncomfortable. Why?
Because I could be doing many other things that would improve my life long term.
Such as working out, writing, studying copywriting, pitching to clients.
You see what I mean.
Time’s running out
You’ll get to a point in your life when you’ll have 2 choices:
- use time to get money
- use money to get time
In my case I chose the second option, and decided to hire someone that could do the job in a couple of hours. I traded my money with his time.
BTW, it’s very simple to know when to use 1 or 2.
The heuristic is as follows:
–> When young, use time to get money
–> When older, use money to get time.
You absolutely need to know when to invest time and when to invest money.
It can make you live a good life. Or make you live a life of regret.
See you next time,
