Seconds in Investment

     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? If you are not   foolish, you should, of course, draw out all of it!

     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 MILLISECOND, ask the person who 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 spend your time.

     Remember that time waits for no one.  Yesterday is history.   Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present!
