No money, lots of time

There’s a concept in sales that says that the harder a person is to get ahold of, the more important they are and the higher likelihood they’ll be able to afford whatever it is you’re selling.
The reverse is also true.
Broke people have all the time in the world.
In all my sales jobs, I always noticed how certain groups of people were super easy to stop.
They had no money. They had no job. They had all the time in the world to stop and talk to me.
They’d happily waste my time because they had no concept of “time is money.” They had no money.
It’s easy to twist this in your own mind and think that the harder something is to attain, the more valuable it is. But that’s not always the case.
Sometimes people just aren’t worth your time, even though they make you work for their attention.
Some activities require a massive amount of time and work, but whether or not the payoff is worth it is questionable.
Really just another paradox. I feel like I’m running into a lot of those lately.
Certainly makes for a lot of boring arguments.
I fucking hate when people are arguing about something and then some idiot pipes up and says, “Well ACTUALLY it’s a balance. You need both.”
Then everyone nods and agrees and the conversation is over.
How boring.
Sad that I find myself becoming that person. All I talk about is contradictions and paradoxes. It sounds clever at first, but once you understand that the concept applies to everything it makes life boring.
Or is that another paradox? Maybe it makes life exciting?
I don’t even know anymore.

Stalk me here too:
