Jar And Two Beers

Jar And 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 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 oured 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 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 recognise 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 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 represented.

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!”
