Time is money is a famous adage. Google defines this phrase of time to be “time is a valuable resource, therefore it’s better to do things as quickly as possible.”
By comparing time with money, the proverb aims to stress the importance of time and how invaluable it is. What it also reiterate is how time, like money, should not be wasted and be used judiciously.
Time is money can also be interpreted to mean that losing time literally equates to losing money- which would in turn result in financial constraints; loss of money thus.
