Try to check the type of your time. It probably is of type string.

This will automatically convert to a time type, if an appropriate time value has been input by the user:
    
time: do input
    
You can also handle more potential user input errors if you want:
    
do get-time: [
    if not time? attempt [time: to-time do input] [
     print "re-enter a proper time value:"
     do get-time
    ]
]

Better yet, give them a default value:
    
do get-time: [
    if not time? attempt [
     time: to-time do request-text/title/default "Seconds:" copy "00:00:02"
    ] [
     alert "re-enter a proper time value"
     do get-time
    ]
]

Best, a function with no side effects or global variables:
    
get-time: func [/local time] [
    either time? attempt [
     time: to-time do request-text/title/default "Seconds:" copy "00:00:02"
    ][
     return time
    ][
     alert "re-enter a proper time value"
     get-time
    ]
]
var: get-time
time ; not set

; timer is enough. why a complete header.
    
    
make a object :
    
bank-account: make object! [ first-name: last-name: account: balance: none ]
    
READY ! object works.
    
other languages make it complicated.

That is strange and heavy. Huuuuuuuhh
