executory consideration

executory consideration
A consideration for a promise or an act, which consideration has not yet been performed and which the party who is to perform is either bound by contract to perform or not. If a promissory note is given for future services of the payee, his rendition of the services furnishes a consideration to uphold the note which is equally valid whether or not he made a binding promise to render them. Miller v McKenzie, 95 NY 575.
