Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! If you could have anything in the world, what would it be? Last year I attended a small conference in Sedona, Arizona and as the ice-breaker the speaker asked this question of the group. A variety of answers were given, but the one that stood out was time. Time is our only limited recourse. So how we spend the days that make our hours, our days, our weeks should be spent well, because you will never get this moment back. How will you spend your day? Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

A Very Special Bank Account

Imagine you had a bank account that deposited $86,400 each morning. The account carries over no balance from day to day, allows you to keep no cash balance, and every evening cancels whatever part of the amount you had failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every dollar each day!

We all have such a bank. Its name is Time. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever time you have failed to use wisely. It carries over no balance from day to day. It allows no overdraft so you can’t borrow against yourself or use more time than you have. Each day, the account starts fresh. Each night, it destroys an unused time. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, it’s your loss and you can’t appeal to get it back.

There is never any borrowing time. You can’t take a loan out on your time or against someone else’s. The time you have is the time you have and that is that. Time management is yours to decide how you spend the time, just as with money you decide how you spend the money. It is never the case of us not having enough time to do things, but the case of whether we want to do them and where they fall in our priorities.
