Every minute counts

By Dot KelleyBy Dot Kelley

Just imagine there is a bank that credits your account every morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day, allows you to keep no cash balance and every evening cancels whatever part of the amount you have not used during the day.
What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course!
Well, everyone 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 you have failed to invest for a 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. No drawing against “tomorrow.” You must live in the present on today’s deposits—Invest it so you can get the utmost in health, happiness and success.
The clock is running. Make the most of today.         To realize the value of one year… ask a student who has failed a grade.
To realize the value of one month… ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.
    To realize the value of one week… ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.
    To realize the value of one day… ask a daily wage laborer who has kids to feed.
    To realize the value of one hour… ask the lovers who are waiting to get married.
    To realize the value of one minute… ask the person who has missed the train.
    To realize the value of one second… ask the person who has avoided an accident.
    To realize the value of one millisecond… ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.
So…
    Treasure every moment you have!
    And treasure it more because you share it with someone special, special enough to have time…
    And remember, time waits for no one.
    Also…
    Yesterday is history,
    tomorrow a mystery,
    today a gift.
    That’s why its called the present!
    And
    today is mine…
    yesterday is only a memory and no one is ever promised a tomorrow.
    We only have today—so we must seize it, use it and enjoy it.
