                                                                                 THE MAGIC BANK ACCOUNT
THE AUTHOR IS NOT KNOWN. 

IT WAS FOUND IN THE BILLFOLD OF COACH PAUL BEAR BRYANT, ALABAMA, AFTER HE DIED IN 1982 

The Magic Bank Account 

Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest: Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use.  However, this prize has rules: 

The set of rules:-

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. 

4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day. 

 

5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say,“Game Over!". It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.


What would you personally do ??? 

You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself, right? 

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right? 

ACTUALLY, This GAME is REAL ... 

Shocked ??? YES!

Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*. We just can't seem to see it. 

The PRIZE is *TIME* 

1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds

as a gift of life. 

2. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is Not credited to us. 

 

3. What we haven't used up that day is forever lost.

4. Yesterday is forever gone. 

5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING... 

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.  Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think. 

So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life, go fishing! 

Here's wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day. Start “spending on the important things like fishing....
 

"DON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT GROWING OLD…!"
 

SOME PEOPLE DON'T GET THE PRIVILEGE

 

 

I am finding as I get older my memory is deteriorating ... today I am unsure if I have found a rope or lost a horse !

All the time. More the better.
Each day I wake up is a great day - even if it turns to custard. Always tomorrow just around the corner.
I retired about 10 yrs ago - sold business after the usual years of slog and stress.
I am not sure I have had a crap day since. Enjoy them all.
Right now fully occupied trying to get some improvement for our local fishery. Grim, depressing job - if you let it get you down. But I see it as something useful to chuck some time at - even if the odds and gains may be small. Who knows? Met some good people along the way. The journey is what counts.
