Withdrawing time from the time bank.


Each morning you go to the time bank. 

The cashier gives you 86,400 seconds to spend. 

You have to spend it come what may. 

So you can or should make each second count. 

Or you can waste or flitter it away.  

(Same as money, I guess) 

But at the end of the day, there will be none left. 

Ask yourself, did I spend it well today?

This post reminded me of something my Mum wrote in my notebook a while back. It's by Arnold Bennett. Hope you enjoy it...

"You wake up in the morning, and lo! your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of the magic tissue of the universe of your life. No one can take it from you. No one receives either more or less than you receive. Waste your infinitely precious commodity as much as you will, and the supply will never be withheld from you. Moreover, you cannot draw on the future. Impossible to get into debt. You can only waste the passing movements. You cannot waste tomorrow. It is kept for you."

Hope everything's going well on the new project. Looking forward to hearing something about it!
