Question of the Day: Value

What's more valuable time or energy?

For example would you rather waste time to save energy?


Waste energy to save time?

Time is more valuable. Time is something that can NEVER be recovered once it's lost. Once this here minute passes...there won't be another 11:21am on a July 27, 2009. Energy, on the other hand, can be recovered.

@ K to the, I absolutely agree, which is why I wrote this post while waiting for the copy machine to power on... b/c it had shut down to save energy. I was thinking watching this thing heat up is a waste of time and time is more valuable than energy.

I should have made an intern do it. LOL! j/k I do not abuse my interns. ;)

LOL! I think Time is more valuable too. I would rather expend a lot of energy in order to get something completed in a shorter period of time, than the reverse.

I think it depends on what you're spending your time and energy on. The two go hand-in-hand, IMO. For example, my job is something I enjoy, but not anything I'm particularly passionate about. I'm wasting my time in the sense that it could be better spent doing something I enjoy, but since I'm not exerting more effort than I need, I don't really feel like it's a waste. But if I was busting my ass for something I really couldn't care less about...wouldn't matter how fast I got something done. It would all be a waste in the end.
