What is your time worth?

Us-passportYou have a limited number of hours each day to make your mark on this world, how are you using those minutes? We recently used the US Passport office expedited mail service to renew passports – and were pleasantly surprised when the new passports arrived in less than two weeks. A Steeleworker commented we could have gone to the downtown location and saved the $60 expedited fee. It is an hour drive there, at least an hour parking and going through the process and another hour back to the office. That is three hours in which we could do something or set up something that hopefully earns a lot more than $60.

What is your time worth today? There is a lesser known lecture from The Last Lecture’s Randy Pausch on time management. It is long but equally as good as his most famous lecture. Carve out some time in your day to watch it, it’s that valuable. Both are below.
