Stole it from Facebook because I am the worst kind of person

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the
class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and
proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed
that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the
jar lightly. The pebbles roll
ed into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar
was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a built of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand
filled up everything else. He asked onee more if the jar was full.. The students responded
with a unanimous Yes'
The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents
into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed..
Now,' said the professor as the laughter subsided, 'l want you to recognize that this jar
represents your life. The golf balls are the important family, your Children, your
health, your friends and your favorite passionating if everything else was lost and only
they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like
your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything small stuff.
you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no mom for the pebbles or the
golf balls. The same goes for life.
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the
things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.
Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take
your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house
and mow the lawn.
Take care of the golf balls firsttime things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is
just sand.
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor
smiled and said, ‘I' m glad you asked.' The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your
life may seem, there' s always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.
