    A professor stood before his philosophy class
    and had some items in front of him.
    When the class began, wordlessly, he 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 poured 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 a unanimous “yes.”
    The professor then produced two cups of
    coffee 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 recognize that this
    jar represents your life. The golf balls are the
    important things- your God, family, your
    children, your health, your friends, and your
    favourite passions–things that 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. Play with your children.
    Take time to get medical checkups. Take
    your partner 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 coffee represented.
    The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked. It
    just goes to show you that no matter how
    full your life may seem, there’s always room
    for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.”
