    Hiho,
    I bet many of you have seen it already, but I thought it was quite meaningful, so decided to share it here for those who have not seen it :)

    "Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, 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 as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a 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 drawing against "tomorrow".

    You must live in the present on today's deposits. invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success. The clock is running. Make the most of today.

    And you never have to worry about an overdraft or a bounced check or even balancing the book. Just spend wisely!! Thanks ... solid quote.

    Nice one, now all we have to do is find an actual bank that converts the seconds into $$$ ;)

    There is a movie about this. Will try to find it. It's about future where money is time and people use time as money there is no dollar. Time is currency. Anyone seen it? It new movie 2012 maybe.
