Setting priorities.




Have you read about the Professor in the Philosophy class that took an empty jar, golf balls, pebbles, sand and a glass of wine. If you haven't, I recommend that you read it.  It's worth your time.

I've read that story several times and today I made a note of it with a little twist in my own version.

I noted it and post it my mirror to make sure to read it every morning before going to work and evening before I go to sleep.

The first yellow post it is an empty jar which represents my life.

The second yellow post it, is a jar with golf balls inside of it.  The golf balls are the important things in my life.  These are my family, children, health, friends and favorite passions.

The third post it, was added by pebbles and these are the other things that matter like, my job, house, car. 
Also, added by sand, these represents 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 your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.  Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

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.

the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if
this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my internet browser because
I've had this happen before. Many thanks
