How Much Is Your Free Time Worth?

Is it easy or hard for you to turn down overtime at work? Do you value your free time the same as your hourly wage? We don’t think it’s that simple. In this video we go over the 3 questions we ask ourselves before spending a lot of time on something:

1. Is the time spent pleasant, neutral, or unpleasant?
2. Will the time spent make you a better person?
3. Will the time spent contribute to learning to skills or physical activity?

If the answer is “yes” to any of those three questions, then we feel it doesn’t necessarily need to yield a positive financial gain. What do you think?

Creating Is More Rewarding than Consuming

I think it’s healthy for a person to practice introspection from time to time. If nothing else, so they can answer for themselves…why? What makes you get up every morning, why do you act the way that you do? We’re asked “why?” all the time, and in this video we attempt to answer that question.

Why do we want to retire early?
Why do we make YouTube videos?
Why do you build complex solutions to simple problems?

After thinking through everything, we realized the reason is because creating is more rewarding than consuming. In fact, a study published by the American Journal of Public Health, found that making art/things is actually a benefit to your physical and mental health.
