Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400!
It carries over no balance from day to day.
Every evening the Bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day….
So, what would you do?
Draw out every day of course!
Each of us has such a balance…. Its name is TIME
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 SECONDS
Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose… It carries over no balance… it allows no overdraft
Every day it opens a new account for you… Each night it burns the remains of the day… If you fail to use the day’s deposits – the loss is yours.
There is no going back… There is no drawing against tomorrow…
You must live in the present on today’s deposits.
Invest it, so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success.
The clock is running… Make the most of today…
To realize the value of one year, ask a student, who failed to pass an exam
To realize the value of one month, ask the mother, who gave birth to a premature baby
To realize the value of one week, ask the editor, of a weekly newspaper
To realize the value of one hour, ask the lovers, who are waiting to meet
To realize the value of one minute, ask the person, who missed the train
To realize the value of one second, ask the person, who just avoided an accident
To realize the value of one milli-second, ask the person, who won the Silver Medal at the Olympics
Treasure every moment that you have
And treasure it more, if you have shared it with someone special enough to share your time
Remember that TIME waits for no-one
Yesterday is history…
Tomorrow is mystery!
Today is a gift – that is why it is called THE PRESENT!
