What if you have all the time and money you can spend, what will you do?

I've attended a business seminar just last week and the participants were asked these question. What if you have all the time and money you can spend, what will you do? Come to think of it, I was caught red handed. I never really thought much of it until that day. I was confused as to buy all the things I never have and do all the things I wanted to do. But then It struck me... If I have all the time and money I can spend, I'll never worry again. I'll just live my life one day at a time without worrying anything doing things what comes my way and spending on things without thinking even if it necessary or not. I won't be the guy who'll buy everything and anything as if the money will be gone the next day. Now how about you...What would you do if you have all the time and money you can spend.

people in general tend to think how they could pay their debts more than what they would really want.

If ever I can have all the money I can spend, first thing I have to do is settle all my debts. Next, I will have to focus on quality investments to secure my family's future. Having done that, I would now set my sight on helping the poor and the needy. The last part would be a Carribean cruise for the whole family....he.he.he...

all the money and the all the time in the world? that would be a dream come true. but I think time and money cant be collected both at a time. have you heard of the old adage "when I was young, I used to have lots of money but no time, now that I am old, I have lots of time but no money". well that usually comes to persons who retire poor. lack of planning for retirement causes these things to come. If I save now, Ill have lots of money to spend during my retirement. and all of the time to spend my saved money. If I have both I would travel the world and see all the exotic and wondrous tourists spots in the world. I would give to charities. I would help in the research for the cure for AIDS and other communicable diseases. that would truly be the day that all of my dreams would come to life.

The reason why it's called "old adage" is because it's old, therefore it has to be updated. The term "retire" would connote that one has worked sooo long and hard. And savings means that one is keeping his money and not using it. These are just some of the common things which one has to understand to visualize that time and money can be achieved but first must be perceived.

If I had all the time and money at my disposal, the first thing I'd do is to get out of the working world, and take a break from the stresses of working. Since I don't have to ever work for money, I will still keep myself busy but channel my time to doing those things which are fulfilling, meaningful and enjoyable - like catching up with my hobbies and leisure pursuits, travelling, acquiring personal knowledge, voluntary work and helping the disabled. I will donate some money to church and to charities, and also use some of it to set up a worthy cause such as a fund to help needy children or families. Life can be wonderful when one can do the things he/she desires, and money and time are not the issue.

As a mother I'll give all the necessary things that my kids needed. Like good education, good health as in I will bring them monthly to the doctor for check up so I won't be worrying if they are sick. And save everything for their future. Everything would be for my kids future.

Since I have rented apartments for the past 28 years I would buy my first home and open a bookstore. Then I would buy houses for my two daughters and help them open whatever business they want. And I would set my parents up, pay off any debts they have, ect. And I would help the church I attend buy the building they are renting.

Coming to think of it is really hard what you would feel like.i dont know what i will do with all the money and time but once you get used to it, it takes the thrill out of your life.i would rather sweat and work for my money and eat a satisfying meal.i wonder what people like Bill gates will do with their money they do donate but their minds are driven by a constant motivation to improve on whatever they do.

Well my biggest amibition has always been to set up an animal chairty here in the UK. It would be for stray, ill-treated and abused caats, and would have al the best facilities, vetinerary care, and staff. My Mother alwas wanted to do this but could never afford to do it, so I would name it after her and set it up in her memory. I would work at it too, just to make sure everything ran well, so my time and my money would be well accounted for!
