The GIFT of TIME

January 25, 2013 at 4:53 am (Inspirational, Purpose, Time Management) (, , )

Imagine there is a bank which credits your account each morning with

$86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day, allows you to keep

no cash balance, and every evening cancels whatever part of the amount

you had failed to use during the day.

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

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 has failed a grade.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who has given birth to a

premature 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 HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

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

THE GIFT OF TIME

To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who has avoided an

accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, 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 history.

Tomorrow a mystery.

Today is a gift.

That’s why it’s called the present!
