$86,400 in Your Account Every Day

Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest…
Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for use. However, this prize has conditions.
Rule #1: Everything that you didn’t spend that day would be taken away from you.
You may not transfer money into some other account. You can only spend it.  Every morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.

Rule #2: The bank can end the game at any time, without warning.

The bank can close the account and you will not receive a new one. Now, what would you do? You would probably buy anything and everything you wanted, not only for yourself, but for all of the people you love, right?

Maybe for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right? Spending every cent, and using it all, even if some of the cash goes to waste.. right?

Guess what… This game is reality. Each of us seems to possess this bank, but we don’t seem to use it properly.

The bank is TIME. Each morning we receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is not credited to us. What we haven’t lived up that day is forever lost.
Yesterday is gone forever.

Each morning the account is refilled, but remember, the bank can dissolve your account at any time…WITHOUT WARNING. What will you do with your 86,400 seconds today?

May your seconds be spent well.

    Interesting perspective. Food for thought.
