The Mayonnaise Jar and Two Cups of Coffee
« on: September 09, 2007, 10:21:03 AM »

>When things in your lives seem almost too much to handle, when 24
 hours
>in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of
>coffee.
>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 rolled 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 an unanimous "yes."
>The professor then produced two cups of coffee 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, "I 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 . "If 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.
>"Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play
>with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your
 spouse
>out to dinner. Play another 18 holes. There will always be time to
 clean
>the house and fix the disposal. 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 coffee
>represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked.
>It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem,
>there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."
