You only have 24 hours!

1 day equals 24 hours, 1440 minutes, and 86400 seconds.

Life is filled with joy. Strangers assisting strangers through difficult times, friends sharing joyful and unforgettable moments, and individuals working together all across the world to make life better one step at a time.

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns. You'll never know for sure what your future will hold. You never know where you'll wind up or what you'll achieve in the next years. You never know whom you'll meet, what you'll encounter, or how you'll feel.

Life is full of heartbreak. People you care about will suffer and die. Your pals may forsake you or forget about you. A lot of things will not go your way. You might lose all of your money or harm your reputation. Innocent individuals will be used, tormented, and starved to death for wicked reasons.

Assuming you only have 24 hours in a day, your success is determined by how you use those 24 hours. People speak about Oprah Winfrey, Ted Turner, Elon Musk, and Warren Buffet. It doesn't matter how much money you make, you only get 24 hours in a day, and the difference between Elon and you is that Elon Musk uses his 24 hours wisely.

Certain things are avoided because we are afraid. Fear of not succeeding. The fear of being judged Fear of being saddled with a burden for the rest of our life if we make a terrible decision. What we don't realize is that fear is a weight in and of itself. Despite this, it's difficult not to be concerned about the implications.

Nobody wishes to die. Even those who desire to get to Heaven do not wish to die in order to do so. Nonetheless, we all end up in the same place. Nobody has ever gotten away from it. That is exactly how it should be because death is most certainly life's finest innovation. It is the agent of transformation in life. It gets rid of the old to make room for the new. You are the new right now, but you will gradually become the old and be cleared away not long from now.


It makes no difference if you are down and out, or if you grew up broke or rich, if you are in school or if you are not in school, how much you reviewed or did not review, you only have 24 hours, there are numerous fruitful people on the planet who are secondary school nonconformists, there are individuals who are selling 6000 books in less than a half year.

We should approach each day with caution—or even skepticism—balancing it with our responsibility to other people and our future selves. As long as we don't take it too literally, living each day as if it were our last is an appealing notion, especially for those looking for the courage to face anxieties, defy norms, and live a life of their own design.


When we just focus on the now, it's easy to become locked in a mindset of resource looting and partying that will leave us with a global hangover from which we may never recover. We would be prudent to learn from the Iroquois Great Law of Peace, also known as the Kaianerekowa, a collection of ancient indigenous precepts that advocate making decisions with seven generations in mind. That's like grasping two centuries rather than the day.

I can fill you in on your life. If you merely record your 24-hour schedule for me, I can see where you will be in the next 5 years, 10 years, or 20 years, provided you stick to that schedule. You can also look at something quite similar.
