how full is your life

Subject: How full is your life?

 

> A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in

> front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a large

> empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, rocks about 2"

> in diameter. He then asked the students if the jar was full? They agreed

> that it was.

>

> So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into

> the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into

> the open areas between the rocks. He then asked the students again if

> the jar was full. They agreed it was. The students laughed.

>

> The professor 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 family, your partner, your

> health, your children - 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, your car. The sand is

> everything else. The small stuff."

>

> "If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the

> medical checkups. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be

> time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the

> disposal." "Take care of the rocks first - the things that really

> matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

>

> But then... A student then took the jar, which the other students and

> the professor agreed was full, and proceeded to pour in a glass of beer.

> Of course the beer filled the remaining spaces within the jar making the

> jar truly full. Which proves: - that no matter how full your life is,

> there is always room for a beer!)

I used to get lame forwards like that in my e-mail sometimes...I can't stand that lame-ass shit.

And also, forwards about dying patients' "last wishes", about "good Samaritans", and peculiar homeless people who turn out to be Jesus, Mary, or Joseph...

Sometimes they ARE entertaining, though, I gotta say.
