Set your priorities

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 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. Take care of the rocks first - the things
that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just
sand."
