Imagine there is a bank account 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. What
would you do? Draw out every cent, of course?
Each of us has such a bank. It's 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 a good purpose. It
carries over no balance. It allows no over draft.
Each 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 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 realise the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student
who failed a grade.
To realise the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother
who has given birth to a premature baby.
To realise the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor
of a weekly newspaper.
To realise the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers
who are waiting to meet.
To realise the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person
who just missed a train.
To realise the value of ONE SECOND, ask someone
who just avoided an accident.
To realise the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the
person who won a silver medal at the Olympics.
Treasure every moment that you have!
And treasure it more because you shared it
with someone special, special enough to spend
your time with.
And remember time waits for no one.
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why its called the present.
