Time: The most precious commodity

It does not take a movie, or reading a book to realize that our most precious asset or commodity is time…

I ran into this viral video about the topic of time scarcity:

I loved the metaphor in that movie. Here’s the full transcript:

Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400.
It carries over no balance from day to day.
Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to used 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 86,400 seconds.
Every night it writes off at a lost, whatever of this you failed to invest to a good purpose.
It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft.
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 drawing against ‘tomorrow.’
You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and health.
The clock is running.

Make the most of today.
