I honestly have no idea how what you're talking about relates to the value of time. Could you please explain further in words of one syllable?
If it helps, my idea of the value of time is something like this: it takes me X hours to perform task Y; that's X hours I could have spent doing something else and which I'll never get back. Hence, there is a cost to performing task Y.
