(1)The Present forumn
Imagine there is a Bank that credits your account every morning with $86,400. However, it carries over no balance from day to day and every night the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, 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 and 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 solely on today’s deposits. So, invest it wisely each day to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and success! The clock is running. Make the most of today. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it’s called, THE PRESENT!
