The University of British Columbia conducted research which suggests that people who place a greater value on their time, rather than their money, are the happiest.
CapeTalk/702’s Redi Tlhabi on Thursday asked listeners what they valued more - money or time; and what trade-offs they have made in order to achieve happiness.
I don’t value time for now; I hustle for money, I’ll get time in the later stage.— Kagiso, caller in Pretoria
Listen to the full conversation on The Redi Tlhabi Show:
I left a higher paying job for a low paying job. My reason for leaving was respect; I was not respected in my position.— Tony, caller in Bassonia
There is no guarantee that you’ll have time to spend your money later in life; rather balance making money and spending quality time with loved ones.— Neil, caller in Johannesburg
