“You don’t get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to the hour.”
– Jim Rohn, entrepreneur, author, and motivational speaker

We have all heard the phrase, “Time is money”. Yet, how much is your time actually worth?
Explore this scenario I use with many of my clients:
Imagine that you are sitting in a comfortable chair with your eyes closed, and suddenly you feel pieces of paper falling on and all around you. You peek for a second, and notice that this shower of paper is actually money of all denominations, up to $100 bills.
Once this shower stops, you are told you have five minutes to pick up as much money as possible. You can only hold it in your hands – no arms, clothing, bags, etc are allowed.
What will be your strategy to capture the greatest value possible, assuming there is an equal number of bills of all denominations?
How does this exercise relate to the value you create with the time allotted to you each day?
