Imagine there is a bank which credits your account each
morning with $86,400, 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 records 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.
