Each Day Is a New Account

So often we wake up and wonder how to fill the hours of our day. We wonder how to do everything we want to that day. Or we decide we will just "be" that day and allow the time to pass. However we decide to use our time, this poem gives us something to think about.:

If, you had a bank that credited your account each morning with $86, 000 ...

That carried over no balance from day to day ...

Allowed you to keep no cash in your accounts ...

And every evening cancelled whatever part of the amount you had failed to use during the day ...

What would you do?

Draw out every cent every day, of course, and use it to your advantage!

Well, you have such a bank ... And 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 balances. It allows no overdrafts.

Each day, it opens a new account with 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."

It is up to each of us to invest this precious fund of hours, minutes and seconds in order to get from it the utmost in HEALTH, HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS!

May it be G-d's Will that you use your time to the full. That you fill your time with kind deeds, goodness. That you find creative new ways to bring beauty into the world and to put a smile on the face of your fellow Jew, and, through this, to give Nachas to Hashem.
