The Present

This article was posted on Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I was introduced to this beautiful, yet stark, collection of words at a philanthropic event two decades ago …

The Present

Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,000. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening it deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent of course!

Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME. Every morning it credits you with 86,000 seconds. Each 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 remains 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 the utmost health, happiness and success! The clock is running. Make the most of today.

To realise the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.

To realise the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.

To realise the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realise the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers waiting to meet.

To realise the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident.

To realise the value of ONE MILLI-SECOND, ask the person who won silver at the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more if you share it with someone special enough to spend his or her precious time with you. And remember that time waits for no one.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift.

“That’s why it’s called the present”.

They came up in conversation again last week … still relevant and thought provoking …
