    Default A Full Life

    A Full Life

    A philosophy professor stands in front of his class and fills a
    mayonnaise jar with rocks that are about 2" in diameter.
    The professor asks the class if the jar is full...they agree that
    it is.

    The professor then takes a handful of pebbles and adds them
    to the jar, shaking it so the pebbles fill the cracks and asks if
    the jar is full and again the class agrees.

    The professor produces a small bag of sand and proceeds to
    add it to the jar, shaking it so it fill the cracks and asks the
    class if the jar is full and for the third time they agreed it is.

    "Now"...the professor says..."I want you to use this jar full of
    sediment as a way of looking at your life...the rocks represent
    the things that are most important to you, your family, your
    partner and your health... things that are the cornerstone of
    your life."

    "The pebbles represent things like your money, your job or
    your dwelling,things that are important, but can be replaced."

    "The sand represents the small things in your life, for instance,
    what you wear, who you are seen with or where you eat."

    "You'll find, if you put the sand in the jar first, you won't have
    enough room for not only the pebbles, but most importantly
    the rocks."

    "The same thing goes for your life, if you spend too much time
    and energy on the small issues, you focus less on the things
    that really matter."

    "Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness,
    play with your children, take your spouse out on a date and find
    time for that medical checkup, in essences, set your priorities...
    you must take care of the rocks first, then let the pebbles and
    sand fill your jar."

    As the professor finishes, he receives a standing ovation for his
    presentation, but through the crowd, comes a pupil from the
    back of the room wearing a backpack.

    He goes to front of the class, takes a bottle of beer out, opens it
    and pours it into the professor's jar.

    The student asks the professor..."would you say the jar now full?"

    The stunned professor could only watch as the student answered
    his own question..."then we must conclude, that no mater how full
    your life is...there's always room for beer!"
