SPEND EVERYTHING IN YOUR DEPOSIT ACCOUNT, LIVE IT UP!

Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest: Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400.00 in your private account for your use. However, this prize has rules, just as any game has certain rules. The first set of rules would be:

*Everything that you did not spend during each day would be taken away from you.

*You may not transfer money into some other account.

*Only you may spend it.

Here are the second set of rules:

*The bank can end the game without warning. At any time it can say, Its over, the game is over!

*It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do? You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right? You would probably jump out of bed before the sun came up just to get your “spending” going!

In reality we actually do have an “account” that gets an automatic deposit every day – but it’s not in dollars … it’s in TIME! Each and every day we get 86,400 seconds and we get to spend our time pretty much however we’d like.

Use this simple concept to help you enhance your life – get up each morning with gusto and make your moments count!

IF AT FIRST YOU DON'T SUCCEED, DO IT AGAIN -- ONLY DIFFERENTLY

OVERHEARD:  A bicycle-riding, bearded young man (presumably a father) dressed in cutoff jeans and baseball cap, commenting to three youngsters also on bikes:  "Just because you fall doesn't mean that you quit doing it...Just get up and do it again, only try doing it differently this time!"

"Great advice!" I yelled at him as they passed by our house.

"That's right," he replied, glancing back at me, rather surprised that I had acknowledged him.  

"There's a good dad," I thought to myself as the bikers made their way up the street.

Sometimes it's the small things that make my day.
