Imagine that there is a bank that credits your account each morning with Rs. 86400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening it deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every paisa, of course!
Each of us has such a Bank. Its name is Time. Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off whatever of this you have failed to invest with good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. 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 going back. There is no drawing against the ‘tomorrow’. You must live in the present on today’s deposits.
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift. That is why it is called the ‘Present’! The clock is running. Make the most out of today.

To help us all gain an extra-hour everyday a clock manufacturer in Dallas has created a watch measuring each minute at 57.6 seconds. The 2.4 seconds borrowed from each minute add up to 60 minutes at the end of each day!
However, you can accomplish the same thing, by simply managing TIME more efficiently!
