Siguiendo con el buen y eficiente uso del TIEMPO, me enviaron un breve cuento sobre un premio que cada uno de nosotros se puede ganar y que se trata de un depósito en un banco muy especial. Se los copio en su texto original (inglés) para no cambiar la esencia de su contexto pero creo que es importante resaltar aquí que debemos usar el tiempo con mucha sabiduría. A continuación el texto:
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 had rules has as any game has certain rules.
The first set of rules would be:
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;
Each morning upon wakening the bank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day. The second set of rules:
1. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say, It’s over, the game it’s over;
2. It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.
What would you personally do? Would you buy anything and everything you wanted, right? Not only for yourself but for the people you love, right?
Even for the people you don’t know because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right? You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right?
ACTUALLY, THIS IS THE GAME OF LIFE!!
Each of us is in possession of such a “magical” bank. We can’t just seem to see it. THE MAGICAL BANK IS TIME!
On awakening each morning we receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us.
What we haven’t lived up to that day is forever lost. Yesterday is forever gone.
Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time. WITHOUT WARNING.
WELL, what will you do with your 86,400 seconds? Aren’t they worth so much more than the same amount in dollars?
Think about that and think about this: ENJOY EVERY SECOND OF YOUR LIFE, BECAUSE TIME RACES BY SO MUCH QUICKER THAN YOU THINK.
