What’s the $86,400 question?

Value the Present
Author Unknown

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? 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 lost, whatever of this you have
failed to invest to 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 going back. There is no drawing against the
“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 running. Make the most of today.

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed
a grade.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave
birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly
newspaper. .

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 missed
the train.

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

Ending.

P.s. Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more
because you shared it with someone special, special enough
to spend your time. And remember that time waits for no one.
