How will you spend your $86,400? 

I was reminded of this story recently that I've heard for years and it's so eye opening, so effective as a thought exercise. 

Imagine this, if you woke up tomorrow morning and you opened up your computer and found out that somebody had deposited $86,400 into your bank account, wouldn't that be a wonderful surprise? 

Well, you look into it and there's only one caveat. You have to spend that $86,400 within 24 hours.

That could be quite a task, but you go after it with zeal. You spend every minute of the day spending that $86,400, and as long as you spend it in the 24 hours, you get to keep it. But at the end of 24 hours, anything that's left will just disappear. And as long as you spend the $86,400. You will get $86,400 every morning with the same deal. Don't spend it all, and it's over. 

How exciting is that? How does that make you feel? How hard do you work to spend that $86,400? Does it become an all consuming process? Do you focus, Do you do exactly what you need to do to get that money spent before the end of the 24 hours? Probably so. 

Well, the thing to realize is there are other things that are more important than money, and one of them is time.

Time is something that slips away and that we never can recover. So every minute, every second of every day is important. 

How many seconds are there in a day? 86,400. 

My question to you is how will you spend your 86,400 seconds? Because once they're gone, they're gone. So focus in, think about this, just let it be in the back of your mind. How will I spend my 86,400 seconds today? Because once the 24 hours are up, they're gone. 

Something to think about. Kind of fun. 

I talk to you again, may you move well, stay healthy, be happy, and use every second, live every second to its fullest.
