What would you do today with $86,400?
What if that amount was deposited
each and every morning into your bank account?
That’s a lot of spending money. But
this bank account is special. Each
evening the bank removes the balance that was not used during the day. This is
not a savings account and there is no compound interest.
Each of us has such a
bank. It’s called life. Each morning we awake with a deposit of
86,400 seconds of life. Each night
whatever has been left undone and not spent for good purpose is lost. No balance remains and there is no overdraft
for tomorrow. Each day opens a new with
a new account to spend.
What would you do with all that
daily cash? Of course, you’d draw out
every last dime and do it in haste!
That’s living life in the present – on today’s deposits.
Invest in your day to get
the most out of it – spend a little, give a little, share a little, laugh a
little. Live your life. By the 86,399 second, most of the day will be
completed. At this moment, your clock is
running. Carpe diem – seize the day.
