The Bank Account That Credits Your Account Every Morning With $86,400


time-LISA CHRISTIANSEN

Time is priceless, yet it costs us nothing. You can do anything you want with it, but you can’t own it. You can spend it, but you can’t keep it. And once you’ve lost it, there’s no getting it back. Time is the most valuable asset you will ever have. Here is a poem found in Paul “Bear” Bryant’s Wallet and I believe this is the best advice regarding time.
“This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is very important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, Leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain, not loss – good, not evil. Success, not failure, in order that I shall not forget the price I paid for it.”
Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account every 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. Its name is time. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as loss, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. 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 it from the utmost health, happiness and success.
Time is the only coin of your life and only you can determine how it will be spent, be careful not to let anyone spend it for you. Choose your own priorities. We often drift through days that are full of things we “have to do” or “should do” or what others “want us to do.” Why? There are plenty of people out there more than willing to put in their two cents about your time. Every day, you’ll hear sales pitches about the endless options you have and other people’s opinion of what should be important to you. Have they got their own lives in such perfect order that it qualifies them to make decisions for yours? Like any purchase, it’s valuable to listen, but keep that coin in your pocket till YOU decide where it will be spent. Try to see the difference between a real obligation and an imagined one. The only things you have to do are the obligations you choose. You might find that more is optional than you really think.
The clock is running…make the most of today!
