You'll never be able to get back the time you've lost.
Because we all have a limited amount of time here.
What's lost is lost.
On the other hand you'll always be able to get back that money you've lost.
Because there are hundreds of ways and opportunities out there to get that money back.
So don't waste too much of your time for money.
And at the same time try to use some of your money to buy yourself more time...
