You may have seen this before. If not, it is an incredible reminder to live your life to the fullest each and every day.
Suppose you have a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400; but it does not carry that balance over from day to day, does not allow you to keep a cash balance, and every morning cancels the remaining balance of whatever you did not use the following day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course!
Well, everyone DOES have such a bank. Its name is TIME. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as a loss, whatever of this amount you have failed to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balance and allows no overdrafts. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the records of the day. If you fail to use the days deposits, the loss is yours-there is no going back. There is no drawing against the “Great Tomorrow.” You must live in the present, on today’s deposits. The past is irretrievable, treasure your memories. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health and happiness.
The clock is running, make the most of today.
