How do you spend 86 400?

" Imagine... there is a bank that credits your account each morning with
£86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening whatever
part of the balance you failed to use during the day gets deleted. What
would you do? Draw out every penny and use it well, of course!!!

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 ticking. Make
the most of today... "
