How much is your life worth? Part I

Have you ever wondered how much your life is worth?  I’m not talking about your net worth, which is the value of everything you own minus your debt.  I mean how much you’re trading your life, in exchange for your employer’s money?  Strange idea, isn’t it?

This will come as no surprise to you, but life isn’t fair.  Some people have it easier than others, but there’s one thing in life that IS fair. We each get 24 hours a day.  No more, no less.  It’s how we use each of those precious 24 hours that makes the difference between a great life and one that’s less so.  So how much money is each of those hours worth to you?

How much money would it take for you to sell those limited hours to someone else? Until now, I bet you’ve never considered how much you’re time is worth to YOU, not your employer.  Most people are paid an hourly wage, or a salary, by their employer.

If you receive commissions, you’re still basically paid by the hour when you factor in how many hours you work to earn your monthly income.  So if you make $20 an hour than you’re worth $20 an hour, right?  Wrong!  It’s far less than that. But how much?

In this post I’ve given you something new to consider for a bit, the idea of exchanging your life for your employer’s or customer’s money, but in part II, you can see a bit more detail.
