TIME, Waste Not

TIME, Waste Not
Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh
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 it deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day.

What do you do? Draw out every cent, of course!!!

Each of us has such a bank.
It's name is TIME.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,000 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 has failed a grade.

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 kids to feed.

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 avoided an accident.

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

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

YESTERDAY IS A MEMORY
TOMORROW IS A VISION
ENJOY TODAY!

YESTERDAY IS... a Canceled Check;
TODAY IS... Cash on hand. Spend it Wisely!
