If You Were Given a Gift of Time, How Would You Use it?

Every person has a time bank and each day, 86,400 seconds are deposited into it. Everyone is given the same amount, without exception. The time bank won’t tell you how to spend it. Time poorly spent will not be replaced with more time. Time doesn’t do refunds. One day, you will go to your time bank and it will be empty. It will be at that moment that you know the answer to this question: ‘Did I use my time well?’
