    "It's worth my time"

    "It's worth my time" and "It's worthy of my time".

    Are both of the above sentences correct and mean the same?[ Shouldn't I omit 'of' here?]

    Thank you.

    Re: "It's worth my time"

    The second sentence requires of.​ Both options are correct. They mean the same thing. The first sentence is more natural, though the second might be used in some contexts.
