Enjoy life

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 box of
sand and poured it into the jar. Of
course, the sand filled up everything
else. He asked once 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, " want you to recognize that
this jar represents your life. The golf
balls are the important things - your
family, your children, your health, your
friends and your favorite passions - and
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 else - the small
stuff.
you put the sand into the jar first,' he
continued, 'there is no room 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 ‘. There will
always be time to clean the house and
mow the lawn.
Take care of the golf balls first - the
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, Tm 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.
Sorry for the long post!
Hope you enjoyed "
