Often I get fascinated by these two subjects: Time and Money. Which one is bigger? Is it the time or the money. 

Consider an youth who want to lead a luxurious life by becoming rich soon. He will not hesitate to spend all the 24 hours of his day working to become rich. For him Money is more important than the Time for fun with his family. He skips meals, avoids sleep and uses the Time for earning more and more Money.

Consider an old woman who is in her death bed. If a magician appeared before her and says like "Hey lady, I am the magician and I can stop the Time from moving forward and u can live for as long as u wanted. But for doing that I will cost you 1 billion dollars" The old woman will definetely go for the offer if she has the Money. For her, Time is more important than Money becoz she wanted to live longer.

Consider a business man; as the name suggests he is always a busy man. When his wife approaches him to talk for sometime he would say "Darling I dont have any Time. I will lose business" For him Time is the Money.

So different people have different priorities with regards to Time and Money. But most of them suffer at a later stage as why the setup is like this. May be they are unaware that time and money are inversely proportional to each other. A software engineer wrote a poem like this:

Here i am sitting in my office @ night…
Thinking hard about life
How it changed from a maverick collage life to strict professional life…...

How tiny pocket money changed to huge monthly paychecks
but then why it gives lesss happiness….

How a few local denim jeans changed to new branded wardrobe
but then why there are less people to use them

How a single plate of samosa changed to a full Pizza or burger
But then why there is less hunger…..

Here i am sitting in my office @ night…
Thinking hard about life
How it changed…..

How a bike always in reserve changed to bike always on
but then why there are less places to go on……

How a small coffee shop changed to cafe coffee day
but then why its feels like shop is far away…..

How a limited prepaid card changed to postpaid package
but then why there are less calls & more messages……

Here i am sitting in my office @ night…
Thinking hard about life
How it changed…...

How a general class journey changed to Flight journey
But then why there are less vacations for enjoyment….

How a old assembled desktop changed to new branded laptop
but then why there is less time to put it on……….

How a small bunch of friends changed to office mate
But then why we always feel lonely n miss those college frnz.….

Here i am sitting in my office @ night…
Thinking hard about life
How it changed….. How it changed…….. 


I can explain to this software engineer that

While in college U ruled the Time and Money. By becoming an employee, U allow the Time and Money to control U. If U are under control, your happiness is also under control...Also we can say that Free Time and Money are mutually exclusive to each other. In college days one had more free time and less money. Later he wanted to earn more money and has to reduce his free time.
