In today’s post, I will share a secret that I have uncovered recently. Sometimes, life’s secrets are very obvious but we just fail to pick them up unless someone points it out to us. In my case, a situation led me to the discovery of this secret. And now, I am sharing it with you…
Let me start by explaining the situation, for some context.
Many people were asking me why did I become skinnier and more tan. So here goes, for past 6 months, I was working 7 days a week.
I do not know if I worked purely for the money, or to avoid some other reality, but that will be for another post.
And it was then that i realised, i have stumbled onto this little known secret. you actually GET to decide how much your time is actually WORTH!
I realised that on weekdays, my time is worth about $15 per hour, and on weekends, my time is worth $20 per hour.
By choosing to play in the system of being an employee for 7 days a week, I had a base time-value (something that many people over value) BUT at the same time, I have a ceiling over the potential of my time value. So in those past 6 months, my time-value varied from $15-20 per hour. And it could only vary within that range.
I was burnt out. falling sick often, feeling tired for the majority of the time that I was awake. And I felt hopeless and totally unable to control my own path and destiny.
So just a few weeks back, I finally made up my mind to cut down on my weekend job. I have successfully cleared off a day! (success starts from a small step, ok!)
With the extra time that is within my control, I am able to decide how much my time can be worth now. I can choose to spend the day with my family, or spend it building a business that will provide greater upside in the future. Just by re-gaining the power I have over of a single day in a week, I can now decide to work on increasing the ceiling on my time value.
- What is your time value?
- Who determines your time value?
Is it being determined by someone else, or do you have control over your OWN worth?

Remember, whatever the situation you are in currently, you had a hand in it. After all, the initial decision to hand over your power for a limited time value, was made by you. Its time to reclaim your control.
