Time is money...now I finally get it.

I've known this saying about time since forever, but I've never fully grasped the concept.
This week I've read (and listened) to some really interesting topics, related to optimal time usage.
Now I know that there is no such thing as "free time", and all the time spent doing nothing, costs us highly.

To put it bluntly, if we analyse everything from the money point of view, there are roughly three ways of spending time:
- learning and investing the knowledge (thinking about ways of reinvesting your profit / creating and reviewing new business ideas etc);
- simply spending money;
- or doing absolutely nothing (escaping in some temporary refuge like movies, sleep etc);
Now, it's not just about money; I only used the previous example to be as close as possible to the original saying. But.., to put it as Napoleon Hill says in his book: "riches" can be anything meaningful to you, not just material possessions.
If you don't use the "free time" to pursue your dream, no one else is going to do that for you. The world isn't simply stopping when you choose to do so, and you risk to be left behind.
So, stop loosing precious time and start doing something really meaningful (this last advice is also self-addressed).
