THE TIME BANK
Your life is a wonderful gift but it has a limited and precious time. A day is made up of 86,400 seconds …
Imagine that there is a bank that credits the sum of 86,400 euros to your account every morning; does not keep your daily balance; each night clears any amount of your balance that has not been used during the day.
What would you do? You would withdraw and spend everything up to the last cent every day, of course!
Well, each of us has an account in this bank …
his name? Time.
Every morning this bank gives you 86400 seconds; every night this bank cancels and gives up any amount of this credit that you haven’t invested in a good purpose.
This bank does not maintain balances or allow transfers.
Every day he opens a new account for you.
Each night clears the day’s balance.
If you don’t use the daily deposit, the loss is yours. You cannot back off, there are no credits on tomorrow’s deposit.
You have to live in the present with today’s deposit.
Invest in this way to get the best in health, happiness and success: the watch continues on its way! Get the most out of every day.
To understand the value of a year, ask a student who has failed.
To understand the value of a month, ask a mother who gave birth prematurely.
To understand the value of a week, ask a girl who is late.
To understand the value of an hour, ask two lovers who are waiting to meet.
To understand the value of a minute, ask someone who has just missed the train.
To understand the value of a second, ask someone who has just avoided an accident.
To understand the value of a millionth of a second, ask an athlete who won the silver medal at the Olympics.
Give value to every moment you live and give it even more value if you can share it with a special person, just enough to be able to dedicate your time to it and remember that time doesn’t wait for anyone…!
This is why the present exists …!
