My wife shared this story with me via email today, and wanted to pass it along to you. Share with a friend if you liked it.
Here’s the short story:
A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him.
The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “Yes.”
“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.
[The rocks] are the important things – your family, your partner, your health, your children – things that 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, your car.
[The sand] is everything else. The small stuff.”
