Time Bank

Imagine that there is a bank which credits your account each morning with $86,400. You cannot keep a cash balance, and there is no carry-over balance from day to day. Every evening, the bank cancels any remaining amount you failed to use during the day.

What would you do? Draw out every last cent, of course! Well, everyone has such a bank. Its called TIME.

Every morning, you are credited with 86,400 seconds. Every night there is a write off, a loss, of whatever remaining amount you have failed to invest. There is no carry-over balance. You cannot overdraw the account. Each day you get a new account; each night the records of the day are deleted. If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours.

There is no going back. You cannot draw against the "tomorrow" deposit. You must live in the present on today's deposits.

You are required to Invest your daily deposit to get the most in health, happiness and success! The clock is running. Make the most of today...

To realize the value of ONE YEAR Ask a student who has failed his exam.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH Ask a mother who has given birth to a pre-mature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of ONE DAY Ask a daily wage laborer who has ten kids to feed.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet . . .

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE Ask a person who has missed the train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND Ask a person who has survived an accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLI-SECOND Ask the person who won the silver medal in the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you have shared it with someone special and doing something exceptional .... important enough to use your daily time deposit.

And remember time waits for no one.
