What do the Wealthy do with their Free Time?
First and foremost ,the wealth have a whole different way of thinking about time. Most people pass their free time away. We waste time. We let others steal our time. To the wealthy time is the most valuable asset in their possession. However, many people think money is the most valuable thing.
The wealthy believe you can get more money but you can never get more time. To the wealthy time is an irreplaceable resource. It is the only limited resource. You can replace money or possessions lost but not time.
Yet most people go through life allowing people to steal our time. We do things in our own lives that waste our time.
The wealthy are very cautious with how they spend their most important resource. Even their free time they do not normally sit down and chat away. No!
The wealthy don’t waste their free time listening to mindless radio in their cars. Instead they say, “ That’s an hour a day, five hours a week, twenty five hours a month, 300 hours a year, 15000 hours in a lifetime ( equivalent to 24 hours a day for two years straight) that I should spend listening to tapes and CD’s that are getting them the wisdom that gets them thinking differently, which then gets them producing differently in their lives that the rest of us.

We think that self help books are a last resort to fixing the problem. The wealthy see them as the start to not having a problem.
I normally tell my daughter that we all have 24 hours and the difference between the rich and the poor is what we do with our time. The wealthy plan their time well in advance. They know what they will be doing at each moment. Is that the case with you? Are you in control of how you spend your free time?
