    When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar... and the coffee...

    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.

    So 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 favorite 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."

    Health, money, family, personal interest.

    Without health, I can't work hard to earn $. Without $, I can't give my family a comfortable life. After I take care of my parents' needs then I do the things I like with the $ I have.

    Hitman...

    a holistic approach. You need golf balls, pepples, sand and of course the coffee. So can we do without coffee or sand?

    My priority in life is to live, and not to look back and feel like my whole life was a waste of time.

    When I was primary 5; which is many years back, I met an Indian guy at the bus stop while waiting for my bus. He approached me and start to introduce himself as a journalist profession, and start to share his opinion on life priority.
    He said one's life cannot be without a family, when we were born our parents take care & love us, no matter what wrong we did, they can easily forgive us. But when we start to grow older, we meet more people and we tends to lost touch of the love they have given us, this is irreplaceable by any other. This is sadly the truth, our 1st 20 years of age we could be still under our parents wing, it will take only one or two mistakes our parents did to totally condemn them and forget what has given to you over these 20 years.
    2nd priority is our family; our siblings our kids and our elders.
    I really glad on the discussion with him and would like him to know:
    "Sir, I am the kid in who listened to your great teaching at Thomson lakeview bus stop, thanks for your guidance even though we only spoke for less than 30 mins, your golden words inspire me till now, thank you sir!"

    Upon reflection, I am also guilty of getting angry at my parents for really small matters. Thanks for the article, serves as a reminder for me to treat them well as they get older by the day.
