We spend all life long trying to get more.
We go for more money, more goods, more sex, more power… and the currency we use is time. We sell time to get money to buy things.
So we basically trade time for things.
However, as time passes away, we realise that all we was going for has always been only more time, it’s all about time.
Time to share, time to live. But the time simply flows away, like a river, while we are spending time in hope of getting time.
Makes no sense.
But we need to run out of time to figure it out – to miss the time.
That’s why companies prefer young workers: they believe they have all the time in the world, and can spend some in trade of more.
What more? Our lifetime is extremely short, we have no extra time to trade. Elders know this, so leech companies don’t like’em.
Don’t sell your time, don’t give your soul away.
