“A Very Special Bank Account Called Time”
How would you spend your daily free #86,400?
Imagine you had a bank account that deposited #86,400 every morning. This account carries over no balance, and every day, allows you to keep no cash balance, and every evening, it cancels whatever part of the amount you had failed to use during the day. What will you do? Draw out every naira each day?
We all have such banks. It’s called Time. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night, it writes off as loss whatever time you have failed to use wisely. It carries over no balance from day to day. It allows no overdraft so you can’t borrow against yourself or use more time than you have.
Each day, the account starts afresh. Each night, it destroys unused time. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, it’s your loss and you can’t appeal to get it back.
There is never any borrowing time. You can’t take a loan out of your time or against someone else’s. The time you have is the time you have and that is that.
Time management is yours to decide how you spend the time assigned to you just as money; you decide how to spend it and who/what to spend it with/on. It is never the case of us not having enough time to do things, but the case of whether we want to do it and where they fall in priorities.
While you still can; Invest in the time you have because what you do with your time determines how much you make.
