The life's priorities

Once upon a time, a professor was talking about the life. He had got the empty glass jar, piece of rocks and sand in separate bowls. He started to fill the empty jar with the pieces of rocks and asked the students whether the jar was filled. The students agreed with him and said yes.The professor shook the jar and started to fill the little empty space with the pebbles. Again he asked the students
whether it was full. They unanimously agreed with him and said yes. Again the professor poured the sand of the bowel into that jar that filled the remaining vacant space. He asked the students if it was full now. They agreed but the professor said you said it was full at the beginning, but I fill with pebbles and sand into the same jar.



He started to explain; " Thus jar represents our life and all the rocks that I filled the jar initially are the important parts of our lives. Those are our family, parents, spouses, children and our health. The pebbles represent our home, jobs, and money and the sand represent the other little stuff like fun and entertainment"

“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your 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. Make your children happy, take care of your parents. Take care of your spouse. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party, or fix the disposal and many more, but you have to set the priority first to your family and your own health. If you spend your precious time just for fun and entertainment, you will miss the opportunity to understand the life .”


“Take care of your family and your health first the things that really matter in your life. Set your priorities. The rest your job, your home, car and entertainment are the secondary items which automatically follow your first priority .”
