Why Time is the Greatest Currency in COVID-19

Financial stress is a real thing right now for a lot of people. With so much uncertainty around the #coronavirus epidemic, no one is sure what’s going to happen to their investments, job or their own bank account.

But there’s one bank account we don’t have to worry about, and that’s our time account. Every day, we wake up with 1,440 minutes. It’s up to us how we use them.

Right now, a lot of people are finding themselves in a position of having to use those minutes scrambling to get work done from home while sharing space with family and possibly even homeschooling children. And that’s those of us who are lucky enough to be able to socially isolate.

Like everyone else I work with in my role as Executive Recruiter, I’m trying to spend my “time dollars” wisely too. Right now, this old aphorism by an ancient Greek philosopher has never felt more relevant:

“Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend.” -Theophrastus

How are you spending your time right now? Love to hear your experiences so far!
