Linking time with money is a real no brainer indeed but there are many other factors which affect our experience of time. It all depends on how you experience time anyway, if you are a past or future dweller or a present moment.
This temporal position of dominance in your mind will cause more or less stress and enable you more or less to change you experience of time. Both past and future give the illusion of a limited commodity that can be squandered at your peril, or that will come at you and pass too quickly etc.
The present moment is unlimited of course, it is eternal, thus you never run out of it and you lose it either. Linking time with money is a real no brainer indeed.
