How do you value your time?
September 20, 2022
In a new book, a hospice physician shares the lessons he's learned from the dying about values and purpose, and how we choose to spend our time on earth.
Time has value to us - both in personal and economic terms. It’s something we often fail to consider when making decisions about how long to work and when to retire. These decisions often focus only on the financial aspects of retirement planning. But as we get older, time becomes a more limited commodity - it’s just that we don’t know exactly how much of it we have left. And, deciding how to use the time available to us involves much more than money.
Jordan Grumet has an unusual career profile. He’s a physician who specializes in hospice care. And, he is a personal finance blogger and host of the Earn & Invest podcast - and the author of a new book, Taking Stock: A Hospice Doctor’s Advice on Financial Independence, Building Wealth, and Living a Regret-Free Life.
You can listen to an interview with Dr. Grumet on Mark Miller's Retirement Revised podcast.
