    Mayonnaise bottle and tw o berers

    Mayonnaise Jar & Two Beers...

    When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24
    hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 Beers.

    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 20 golf
    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 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, '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 favourite 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 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 time to get medical checkups. Take your
    spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. 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 Beer
    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.

    Please share this with someone you care about. I JUST DID!
