“If you don’t respect the value of your time
it’s really hard to get anyone else to do the same.”
Not only was this retweeted dozens of times but, when I posted it on my Facebook Wall, it received a whole ton of “likes” on both of my pages.
Obviously, many relate to this dilemna which manifests in not charging enough money for one’s work.* And, in this case, I don’t believe that “time” is meant in hours, but rather in the value you provide to others. Money for hours is simply the measurement of the value used in Terry’s tweet.
Question: why do you think this is such a prevalent challenge; lack of self-esteem?…market conditions?…competition?…or something else?
Would love to know your thoughts.
* Of course, Terry’s quote could also be referring to non-monetary related issues. For the purposes of this discussion, however, let’s look at it in the context of business and monetary remuneration.
