Imagine there is a bank which credits your account each morning with
$86,400, 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 had failed to use 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 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
records 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 running. Make the most of today...
