$86,400 a Day

If you had a bank that credited your account each morning with $86,400, that carried over no balance from day to day, allowed you to keep no cash in your account, and every evening cancelled out whatever part of that amount you failed to use during the day, what would you do?

Draw out every cent, of course! Well, you do have such a bank and its name is "time." Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it rules as lost whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose! It carries over no balance and allows no overdrafts. If you fail to use the day's deposit, the loss is yours. There is no going back, no drawing against tomorrow. So, invest your seconds so that they will give you the utmost in health, happiness, and success.
