(One of the keys to achievement, at all ages, is to take action. NOW. Here’s why.)
Here comes a moment in time. It’s coming. Coming. Whoooosh! There it goes. Here comes another one. Closer. Closer. Whoooosh! There it goes. They’re sure not here long, are they? They must be valuable.
Here’s a story about valuing time. It’s not original with me, but I can’t tell you the author because s/he is “unknown.” Enjoy.
Imagine there is a bank which credits your account each morning with $86,400 and every evening cancels whatever part of the amount you failed to use during the day.
What would you do? Use every cent, of course!
Well, everyone has such a bank. It’s 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. 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.
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.
And remember, time waits for no one. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.
