Time - A priceless commodity

Given the choice, would you rather save time or money?

Do you spend money to save time or spend time to save money? 

Well, if happiness is the goal, you might consider buying time.

We live in a world where people are consumed with work, family and all sorts of activities. 24 hours a day is no more enough for most humans. Lack of time or time-pressure to do things you want to do may result in stress and anxiety which could eventually lead to health problems for some. 

The question now is, could spending money to essentially reclaim that time by hiring help to clean, hire professionals instead of doing the job yourself lead to greater well-being and happiness? The answer - absolutely.

If there’s some task that just thinking about it fills you with dread, then it’s better to outsource the task especially when you can afford to buy your way out. Research shows big benefits and greater happiness after spending money on a time-saving purchase, paying for help that frees up your time than spending money on a material purchase. Hiring household help or paying someone to run an errand allows you to spend time on something you enjoy such as reading, learning a new language, seeing a friend, playing squash, going to the gym or whatever that makes you happy.

“People who spent money to buy themselves time, such as by outsourcing disliked tasks, reported greater overall life satisfaction,” said Ashley Whillans, an assistant professor at the Harvard Business School and lead author of the study, which was based on a series of surveys from several countries. Researchers did not see the same effect when people used money for material goods.

Most people focus on money. But how you spend your time is much more important than how you spend your money. Money mistakes can often be corrected, but when you lose time, it’s gone forever. Use your time wisely - on the things that really matter. Time is priceless.
