A philosophy professor stood before his class
had some items in front of him.
When class began, wordlessly he
picked up a large empty
mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it
with rocks right to the top, rocks about 2"
He then asked the students if the jar
was full? They agreed that it was.
So the professor then picked up a box of
and poured them in to the jar.
He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles,
of course, rolled into the open areas
between the rocks.
The students laughed.
He asked his students again if the jar
was full? They agreed that yes, it was.
The professor then picked up a box of
sand and poured it into the jar.
Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
"Now," said the professor, "I want you
to recognize that this is your life.
The rocks are the important things - your
your partner, your health, your children -
anything that is
so important to you that if it were lost,
you would be nearly destroyed.
The pebbles are the other things in life
that matter, but on a smaller scale.
The pebbles represent things
like your job, your house, your car.
The sand is everything else. The small stuff.
If you put the sand or the pebbles into
the jar first, there is no room for the rocks.
The same goes for your life.
If you spend all your energy and time on
the small stuff, material things,
you will never have room for the things
that are truly most important.
Pay attention to the things that are critical
Play with your children. Take your partner out
There will always be time to go to work,
clean the house, give a dinner party and fix
Take care of the rocks first - the things that
Set your priorities:
The rest is just pebbles and sand
