Good morning. This is Laura.

00:00:42 before breakfast podcast today's tip is to make time Centric decisions. It's easy to undervalue time in our choices. But since time is the ultimate limited resource. We want to honor its value as much as possible.

Today's tip like another this week comes from Ashley Williams new book time smart willens argues that we need to do a better job building time into our mental accounting.

Plenty of us focus more on another metric money when choosing jobs most of us Focus too much on salary and Prestige easy to measure metric and not enough on the value of the time we'll spend in the job or the ways the job will allow us to shape our time outside work she writes it's not that a time focused person isn't willing to work long hours. It's just that this time focused person wants to enjoy those hours and if she somehow whines up and work that she doesn't like so much. She's careful to limit the time cost so she can enjoy her time outside of work.

Women's notes that people also make lousy time decisions about where they live people often want big houses and lots of space. But at least in the pre covid world where people went into the office every day in order to have those things and high paying jobs people often have to live on the very outskirts of major metropolitan areas and that can mean a long commute.

Commutes are the most miserable part of the average person's day really there is time use research supporting that it's getting an extra bedroom in a bigger garage worth losing an extra 20 minutes every morning and evening for years. Maybe sometimes we have to take factors like school districts and our spouses jobs into consideration and who knows maybe we'll get the opportunity to work from home long-term.

But on the margin we might get used to a smaller house but a commute will be misery over and over again.

I think there's something to this and I also know that it's easy to undervalue time. I write about time and even so I sometimes find it hard to make time Centric decisions I've taken on Project. I wasn't so excited about because the pay seems decent. I have flown at inconvenient times because the tickets cost less. I have stayed inside a nice days out of a vague sense that I was behind on email.

Sometimes it makes sense, but we can make more money. We can never make more time. Once the second is gone. All the money in the world can't buy it back and want money can do wonderful things making money Centric decisions tends to make people less happy as well as rights in her research students who prioritized time or more likely to report that they were working at something they wanted to do as opposed to something they had to do.

So as you're making your decisions today and going forward ask if you are properly valuing your time, maybe you are but many people aren't when they finally let push notifications interrupt our free time for no reason whatsoever. Don't just give away something this valuable make time Centric decisions and you won't
