If I gave you $1,440 today, how would you spend it?
I suspect you would carefully ponder the best use of it.
I bet you might even apply a portion of it towards
achieving some of your Goals.
And what if I gave you $1,440 tomorrow?
And another $1,440 the next day… and the next day?
How would you invest your $1,440 each day?
Still with me Friend ?
Now what if I gave you $86,400 today?
Would you value those dollars?
Would you apply a portion of them towards your Goals?
And what if I gave you $86,400 tomorrow and the next day
and the next day?
I bet you would pay even closer attention to how you would
invest it, right?
You would make it work for you.
I sure would.
I’m not going to give you $1,440 or $86,400.
You already have the equivalent of it but you may not
Those numbers should have tremendous meaning in the scope
of life for both you and I.
You already have 1,440 and 86,400 in your bank account.
We begin each day with 1,440 MINUTES deposited into our
TIME bank account.
We begin each day with 86,400 SECONDS deposited into our
TIME bank account.
And how we VALUE those minutes and seconds is what
determines what they may bring us.
How we spend them and how we INVEST them determines the
quality of our life today and tomorrow.
And when you string the seconds and minutes together to
accumulate in the form hours, days, weeks, months and
years, you determine your destiny.
Much like money can compound with interest, so does our
time.Â Invest one hour per day into reading and it might
not seem like much but invest an hour per day into reading
in an area that can improve the quality of your life for a
month or six months or one year and you have the power to
shape your destiny.
We all began today with the same amount of time.
If you consciously value your TIME bank account, you can
transform any area of your life and achieve your Goals.
You are already wealthy.
What makes a person’s life for better or worse is the way
they invest their wealth of minutes.Â
What are you doing with your seconds?
How are you investing your minutes?
Everything affects everything…
How you think.
Who you spend them with.
What you do with them.
You may or may not have the dollars at your disposal but
you do have the seconds and you do have the minutes.
“A man who dares waste one hour of time has not discovered
the value of life.”Â -Charles Darwin
Allot some of your minutes towards reaching your Goals.
Allot some of your minutes towards pursuing your DREAMS…
The one thing you and I have in common is that today we
started our day on equal ground with the same amount of
minutes.Â Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Phelps, Tiger
Woods, (insert the name of someone who inspires you).Â We
all have the same minutes today.
What separates us is how we value our minutes and how we
spend and invest them.
What we do with that them will determine whether or not we
reach our Goals.
Donâ€™t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days
in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a weekâ€™s
value out of a year while another man gets a full yearâ€™s
value out of a week.Â -Charles Richards
Quality of life and time management are as much about clarity,
prioritizing as it is about appreciation of the minutes we
have been given.
What we do with those 1,440 minutes today and everyday will
determine our results in life.
That’s 525,600 minutes per year.
Invest them wisely.
