For your soul !

  • A philosophy professor stood before the class with the  depratment with a few things. When the class began, without saying a word, took a large empty jar, wich he field with golf balls. Aasked the students if the jar was full and they was agreed it was. The professor then piked up a box pebbles and poured them into the jar shaking it slowly. Pebbles filed the gaps between the golf balls ... He asked the students again as it's been in the choir and they responded : "fuullll" . Under the chair, professor acquited two cups of coffe that he poured into jat filing it this time permanently. The students laughed. "Now " said the teacher after laughter have subsided "I want you to understand that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important thing : family , children, health, friends and yout passions, and as everything would be lost out of this, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter to you : job, house, car and small sand is everything else. If you star with the sand, you will not ha ve where to put golf balls and stones. Like in life, if you still wasting time and energy for little things, you never have time for important things for you !!! Pay attention to things important to your happines ! Play with children, take regular health checks, leave town with your wife or husbend to dinner, play golf, you will have enough time to clean up another time or who knows what device to repair. You 1st of all, take care of golf balls, they really matter. Set your priorities, the rest is just send ."

    One student raised his hand that were inquiring about two coups of coffe. Profesor replied smiling : " I'm glad you ask that. They just want to show that no matter how full your life may  seem, is alway time for two cups of coffe with a firend ! "
