Fall Forward in Good Time

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.
