This is THE Most Valuable Currency in the World (Hint: It’s NOT Money)!

time is precious

Have you ever wondered what the most important currency in the world is? Gold? Dollar? Bitcoin? Oil? Nope, none of those.

The answer is Time.

Time is the most important currency in the world.

You can waste money and all those other things, but there are ways to get it back. However, if you waste time, it’s lost forever.

All that we have, all that we are and all that we become, is a result of the choices that we make during our time here on earth. Better make some damn good choices then, right?

You could look at our timeline as follows:

B — — — — — — — — — — — -C — — — — — — — — — — — D

Birth — — — — — — — — Choices — — —— — — — — Death

We are born in a certain setting, in a specific location, family, country.. that we can’t choose. As we grow up, many choices are made for us. Our parents, environment and family decide a big part of who we are and who we will become.

However, once you become self-aware and start to make your own decisions, then your life really starts. You get to make choices, and those choices will determine the rest of your life.


If you’re going through Hell, why would you stop there? Keep going!

Many things will happen throughout your life. Good things and bad things.

If a bad thing happens to you, all you have is the way you react to it, will you let it devour you, or will you fight back and accept it? If you’re going through hell, why would you stop there? Just keep going!

While I’m writing this article, prices are going through the roof. Inflation, energy prices, economy and stocks are declining, there are wars… Things are looking really bad. I am struggling financially to pay my debs and bills, but here I have the choice: Shall I complain and do nothing about it, or shall I accept these facts and try to make the best out of it?

Exactly. There are many things that you CAN’T change, but what you CAN change is what you CHOOSE to do, how you CHOOSE to react, who you CHOOSE to be.

… and hell, I choose to work my ass of, start side hustles, invest, stay positive… I choose to be successful!

Your thoughts decide your actions, and your actions decide your life

Everyone has dreams, but not everyone decides to follow them. Or some people do, but they first spend hours, days, months, years thinking about them.

In some cases it’s good to reflect and not immediately take action, but remember: Time is Limited, Time is Money.

So, how can you avoid wasting your time and get started immediately?

8 Tips For Mastering Your Time

  1. Figure out how you’re currently spending your time. Make a list of your daily activities. What do you do, how much time do you spend on them and what can you improve?
  2. Create a daily schedule — and stick with it (this might be the most important tip)!
  3. Prioritize wisely.
  4. Avoid the urge to multitask (unless you’re really good at it)
  5. Assign time limits to tasks. E.g. morning workout: 20 minutes.
  6. Learn to say no. You can’t please everyone, you can’t do everything.
  7. Don’t stress too much and take breaks.
  8. Take risks, make mistakes. You can’t do everything right from the start.

Something I’m working on… :

If you need any help with managing your time, or coaching – I am starting a coaching program this year. And since I’m still working things out, the EARLY BIRDS will get a HUGE discount!

The Golden Rule of Time

You can always earn more money somehow, but you can never earn more hours in a day. Keep in mind that you only have 1,440 minutes each day, so spend your time on activities that really matter — both professionally and personally.

In fact, time can only be spent. Because time is perishable, the only thing you can do with it is to spend it differently, to reallocate your time away from activities of low value and toward activities of higher value. But once it is gone, it is gone forever.

So…. what will you do?
