When we are young, we normally have less money but more time, therefore we value our money more. As we get older this becomes the opposite, usually we can afford more but become time poor.
This idea of time versus money was tested on me this past week, when my 2 hour flight from Barcelona to London was cancelled due to air traffic control strikes in France. This meant not only flights to and from France were cancelled, but also most flights that had to travel over France air space.
Being a freelancer, I really value my time. Time is money in my world. If I waste a day, I do not get paid. This past week, I was on my way to a great conference, BrightonSEO. I was asked to be part of a Freelance Roundtable discussion and therefore there was additional need for me to be there. I had to get to England.
