Have you seen the movie In Time?
In this movie, people have discovered a way to live for eternity. All they need is to have time. In fact TIME as become the new currency.
There is still a big gap between the poor and the rich. The poor live day by day hoping they will find, earn or steal more time in order to survive the next day. Every expenses is closely monitored as a simple bus ride could make you run out of time. The poor do everything quickly since time is everything and they are in short supply. The rich have a distinct relax pace since they have a few life times worth of time.
I found it interesting, the importance we place on money is very much as the importance the movie placed on time. The only people constantly concern with money are those who are always on the brink of running out. Closely keeping track of pay dates and account balance. For those who money is not an issue, they concentrate their energy on the relationship in their life instead.
Wouldn't you want to not have to worry about running out of time? We all have the same ability to educate ourselves in money matters. Learn to become financially independent and take control of your time.
