When income becomes too expensive!

Written by on April 18, 2022


On a daily basis we trade our time for income without sparing a thought for whether our time might have a better alternative use. 


Earning a regular salary opens up opportunities to take care of our needs, pursue our dreams and live meaningful lives. But it can also deprive us of those very opportunities when the salary itself becomes the dream.


It is easy to cross the line where the means to the end becomes the end in itself. The challenge is not recognising where the line is. The challenge is recognising that there even is a line. 


What is earning your salary costing you? It might be more expensive than you think. Be mindful of what you are trading off and intentional with how you spend your time.
