A Very Special Bank Account Tue, Apr 18, 2017
Imagine your bank account gets credited $86,400 each morning. No balance can be carried over to the next day and you are not allowed to keep any cash balance. Essentially, your bank account reads zero at the end of the day. What would you do? Draw out every dollar each day!
We all have such an account called TIME. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds and writes off as a loss whatever time you have used unwisely. No overdraft is allowed, so you can’t borrow against yourself or use more time than what you have. Hence, each day the account starts fresh and each night it destroys unused time. Failing to use the day’s deposits is your loss and you can’t appeal to get it back.
There is no borrowing time and you cannot take a loan on another's time. It all comes down to "The time you have is the time you have and that is that."
Time management is deciding how you spend the time, same as with money where you decide how you spend the money. There is never the case of us not having enough time to do things, but the case of what we do with time.
