Remember The Bank Account

We have a friend that tells us everything she is doing, including the where, when and precise day. “There’s not enough time, and just can’t do any more than I’m doing,” she explains.

This little story is for her, and everyone else that has run out of time.

The Bank Account

Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Most people would say, “Draw out all of it, of course.”

Each of us has such a bank account. Its name is Time. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. It’s up to you how you invest this precious time. 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 going back. 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 always running. Make the most of each day. Ginger’s mantra is, “Carpe Diem”.

To realize the value of One Minute, as a person who missed the plane.

To realize the value of One Second, ask a person who just avoided an accident.

To realize the value of One Millisecond, ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have. And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special.

And remember that time waits for no one. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.

This week’s bottom line: There are three faithful friends, an old wife, an old dog, and ready money. – Benjamin Franklin
