The Magic Bank Account

The Magic Bank Account was received today in an email... Actually makes some sense to me... Enjoy

Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest:

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use.

However, this prize has rules:

The set of rules:

1. Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you.

2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.

3. You may only spend it.

4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.

5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say, "Game Over!" It can close the account and you will not
Receive a new one.
What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people
You don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself, right?

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?

Shocked ? YES!

Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*. We just can't seem to see it.

The PRIZE is......... *TIME*

1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life.
2. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us.

3. What we haven't used up that day is forever lost.

4. Yesterday is forever gone.

5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING...

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.

Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because
Time races by so much quicker than you think.

So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life!

Here's wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day. Start "spending".

I was about to make a witty remark laced with sarcasm, and then something just clicked at the last minute finishing up those remaining sentences.


I think I can appreciate the heaviness, which when you do everything suddenly becomes light and airy. A big relief realizing that any problems bothering you are just so small. The trouble I have is many people around me are unable to grasp concepts like this often times. And it can frustrating when you want to just enjoy life, but others aren't on the same page.

I'd kick back in my underwear and spend the days with my wife and dogs, be happy and retire!
Hey, wait a minute...
I did it!

Personally I like to spend 43,200 of them sleeping. Then after, usually, all hell breaks loose.

Awake seconds always seem longer when your doing things for yourself and others, not sure why, that's just the perception I get.

Kind Regards

Thank you for the reminder and the well wishing! This is a great perspective check! The emphasis must be on the present and time is far more valuable than money, love on!

Namaste Aloha

Well just as a rich man may not need to buy anything and therefore 'waste' his 84k, a man with nothing left to do that day could just sit on a beach all day and do nothing. You cant really waste something if its not actually needed.

So what do i do with my 84k seconds? What ever needs to be done, which includes wanting to doing something fun, watching a movie or having a nice meal with whoever. It could be just fixing the sink

So i dont feel like im wasting seconds like dollars when i do nothing with them. What does a lion do when its not hungry? Absolutely nothing.

Sounds like the card I'm trying to get to.

Or you could just pat newborn on the ass and say, "You got
about two and a half billion seconds to live little guy...go get 'em!"

The OP just gave me a reason to sign off of this site.

It is a colossal waste of time... when I think about what I could be doing.

Just buy Gold, Diamonds, land, and resell it later.
