Sunday Story…The National Time Bank
Imagine your joy if you had a magical bank account that was filled every morning with $86,400. You get up, check your bank and see almost 100 grand in the bank. But like many things magical it has some rules that are attached (like Cinderella and the coach at midnight). At the end of the day anything left in the bank account disappears. You can keep what you buy. You can reap whatever benefits those dollars give you. Wow! If you had a bank account like that it would be amazing. I bet you would be super conscious about how you spent that money. You would plan it out, set goals around it and you would leave nothing to chance when morning rolled around every day.
Guess what? You have that bank account right now. It is the National Time Bank. Every one of us receives 86,400 seconds every day. Every one of us gets the same time every day. At the end of the day there isn’t any more. You can’t save it for a rainy day. You can’t use more than those 86,400 seconds. That’s all there is and there ain’t no more! Those seconds are going to disappear no matter what you do or don’t do with them.
Soooo…how did your spend your 86,400 today?
