I am going to put $86,400 into your bank account every day for you to spend any way you wish. However, it will carry no balance over from day to day. Every day, the bank will delete whatever part you failed to use. What would you do? Withdraw every cent? See, each of us has a bank account just like this. It’s the bank of time, because every morning, we are credited with 86,400 seconds. Every night, the bank of time writes off, as a loss, whatever amount of this time we failed to use. It will not carry over any balance, and it will not allow any overdrafts.
If we are not trying to do our jobs to the best of our ability at all times, then exactly what are we doing? If you do have established goals in your company or goals that are set before you, are you actually trying as hard as you can to reach those goals and then sitting back and coasting for the rest of the month? Personally, I don’t see this as an option.
In business, we hear a lot of quotes about time. What I would ask you to do right now, is focus on your time. As the leader of your team, your company, your family, your community, what do you spend your time doing?
