Time. There never seems to be enough of it.

Don’t you wish you could save up time and use it when you need it? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a time account somewhere?

Actually, you have exactly that.

Every morning, your time account credits you with 1,440 minutes. Every night the balance goes back to zero and you lose the time you have failed to invest. This account carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. But every single day it makes another 1,440 minute deposit. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours because whatever remains is gone. There is no going back. You can’t borrow from tomorrow.  You have to live in the present on today’s deposits.

I read an article that described time this way:

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 plane.

To realize the value of ONE-SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident.

Today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the “present”. And it’s up to you to invest your time so you get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and success.

The clock is running.
