Professor of philosophy came to their time in front of you on the table is lined up some items.
When time began, wordlessly he picked up a very large, empty jar and filled it with stones the size of about 5 centimeters in diameter.
Then he asked the students if the jar was full. Everyone agreed it was.
Then the professor picked up a box of pebbles, which is poured into a jar, and then gently shake the jar. Gravel is a natural fill empty spaces between the stones.
The professor asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor then picked up a box of fine sand and poured into a jar. Of course, the sand filled the remaining empty spaces in the jars. Then he asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with unanimous “yes”.
“Now,” said the professor, I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The stones are the important things in it – your family, your partner, your health, your children – things that if everything else is lost, and the only ones remaining, your life would still be full. The gravel represents the other things that are important – for example, your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else, the little things, socializing, traveling, partying, entertainment and so on. “
“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continues, “there will be no room for the pebbles or stones. The same goes for your life. If you deal with your all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are most important. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your kids, take your partner to ples.Uvek will be time to go to work, clean the house, or making parties. “
“Take care of the rocks first – the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand. “
