Many people shy away from the process of asking others for a financial gift. Interestingly, the level of trepidation usually is much lower when people are confronted with the task of asking someone to spend their time (and not their money) helping out a good cause.
Based on the differential responses to these activities, it would not be unreasonable for an observer to infer that money must be much more valuable than time. Hence, the reason people don’t like asking others for money, but have little difficulty asking for people’s time.
But which, truly, is more valuable? A person’s time or their money?
There is an old saying, “My time is far more valuable than my money. I can always make more money.”
Maybe we have it all wrong. Maybe asking for money should be the easier of the requests.
