In a world driven by money, we sometimes forget that we are blessed with an abundance of one resource everyday - time.  In this short, one minute, film, Elvis de Leon gives us a perspective that will change the way you look at today. “Why waste time? It doesn’t carry over to the next day. It doesn’t earn interest. Take every day and every moment, and make something of it. Make something positive.”

    For a procrastinator, KNOWING that you were to going to get the same number of seconds tomorrow might enable you to turn over and go back to bed because you can put off life till tomorrow, it needs to be pointed out that today MAY be the last 84,600 seconds YOU HAVE so don't waste them

    The most substantive, inspiring minute I could have spent was watching Elvis' message. Thank you for the beautiful, poignant reminder.

    Elvis is right to Point out that you should use your time in a way that is positive for yourself. The film is wrong about having to Point out, that Elvis is a successful graphic designer. This doesn't matter. A life can be as meaningful as any other even if you are not "successful" in Terms of our materialistic Society norms.

    Profound and very well analyzation of a suggested recommended path that one may ensue. With that said, I also sense a lot of pain, anguish and to some degree maybe even a agonizing lack of closure regarding his personal lost. I extend to him all my mortal and spiritual strengths relevant to his sets of circumstances.Amen

    Positive and an important point of view. Thanks Harlem Elvis! Time is precious; time waits for no man - are the cliches. What is not a cliche is the fact that one 24 hours day is a fixed number of moments; of seconds, and that number is 86,400 seconds. It's a interesting coincidence that it's also one tenth of the miles that comprise the diameter of the Sun: 864,000 miles.
