If you were given $86,400 a day, what would you do with it? Would you invest it, would you spend it all? That's a lot of money coming in, it's overwhelming! You almost can't handle that amount! In a year you would have accumulated $31,449,600! Think about what you would do with all this glorious money! Now change your way of thinking for a moment. In a day there are 86,400 seconds. You as a person have 86,400 seconds in a day. You spend 28,800 seconds sleepings, so you're left with 57,600 seconds. So in a year now you have 20,966,400 seconds of awake time. Not to mention some people work 8 hours a day as well. I hope I'm not losing you! Now this is time you have to invest in your life! What are you going to do with it. Because the time you have in your life is more precious than if you were given the same in dollar amounts. You could die tomorrow and all that money would be gone. What you choose to invest your time in is so much more important.

Too bad that we take our life for granted and constantly worry about money instead of living our life to the max.

People who suddenly have an excessive amount of money will do nothing else but think about it for the rest of their lives. A horrible idea.

@vsvs56 I know, I've read it. But this doesn't change my thoughts. Money will be your only concern for the rest of your life no matter how you spend it.

I would pay off the student loans that two of my kids got. Then I would get a car to replace my nine-year-old car with the engine light on. Then I would move out of this dump and get a better place to live. I would also take care of some health needs that insurance does not cover. I know that sounds selfish but it is what I need to do first then I would start giving money to missions and my church. Also, to the thrift store where I volunteered.

I'd save that money for 1 year and from there open one business and take things ahead.

I'm not sure that you've read this entire topic of discussion, this misses the point completely. But good business sense nonetheless.

I believe I'd invest it. Apparently that's what I'm doing with my time as well. I invest it in love, activities, entertainment, knowledge, various forms of art, self exploration. Sleeping is an investment too, many people even forget about it completely. So all $86 400 get invested. The return? 300% minimum :D

If I had $86,400, I would invest some of it, rent an apartment, travel to the countries I want to explore, and buy a car. I would also buy trendy stylish handbags, shoes, and clothes, and save for my future wedding. I would also donate to charities. I wouldn't just spend it on myself. There is so much you can do with that much money.

I think I see your point. If I suddenly came into a lot of money, I would invest it. Conservatively. With my time, I try to use it well. I have many hobbies. I also try to reach out to other living critters when I meet them.

I'd build a house on a huge 100 acre property. Build a business, employ hard working people, and invest a lot of businesses and employ managers to look after them. I will be a capitalist-- a darn good one-- generating money for my country's economy. I'd build a house for my mother and brother and sisters. Enjoy life wisely as King Solomon pointed out.

Love the analogy! However, I put the 'pro' in 'procrastinate' so valuing one's time is a lesson that I'm continually trying to learn up to now!

Take care of my immediate financial priorities and responsibilities first (that includes giving back to God for His blessings), set aside a portion for a rainy day and/or emergencies, set aside an amount for my children, and with the remaining amount figure out how to invest it wisely and/or support a good work. But! I don't buy lottery tickets.
