Time is the only currency we have.

So imagine a shop that specialises in time saving equipment and services.

       Almost all equipment and sevices are time-saving to the extent that, if you buy them, you don't have to spend the time required to provide them yourself.

       Services I can think of. Imagine fancy questionnaires that take 10 minutes to complete and a healthy dose of machine learning to work out what people prefer given recommendations.   

       Book Us a Holiday .com   

       Pick a country Pick a type of holiday; bucket a spade, party holiday etc.."   

       Get My Will Done . com   

       "Do you have children?" "Who do you want to receive what?"   

       Mystery Dinner Date . com (taxi picks you up and deposits you somewhere mysterious)

       Can I buy a service from them that buys all the services from them that I need? This saving me the time of going to the shop to work out what services they have and whether or not I need them?   

       Also if they can do my taxes, pay my road tolls and bills, and generally manage my life admin for me, all while taking a % out of the service providers margin so I don’t have to pay anything more, then that would be great too.

       You can't take it with you, you know ...

       Oh. I thought you might have figured out a way to actually sell time, using maybe relativity or something. If there was a shop where you could actually buy time, by the second (or kilosecond), I would be very interested. This sounds more like JMLDirect.

       I could do good business selling time. It's £200 per hour. Now sit there, pay your £200 and I'll start the clock. When you have had your hour, you can either leave or pay another £200.

       [-] In no way does time need saving.

       wjt, can you explain?
chronological, May 02 2020
  

       It's just a constant attribute. Locally hire some people, that is, expend more energy (more time) to get more done.
