Just imagine the consequences of falling asleep at the wheel even just for a second - while driving on the highway at 130km/h.
Or imagine carrying a big, heavy box down the steps, and, just for a moment, not paying careful attention to where you put your foot.
You've probably seen what happens when people do such things, or have some first-hand experience of it yourself.
If usually, one's life is relatively comfortable and safe, one may have the tendency to not think much about the importance of every moment and every action one does.
Imagine, on the other hand, being a member of a gang, or a deer living out in the wilderness: one has to be alert all 60 seconds of every minute of every hour, 24/7.
Karma operates 60 seconds of each of the 60 minutes of every hour, 24/7. Which is why and how every moment matters.
EDITED because a minute has 60 seconds and an hour has 60 minutes.
