    Think about it

    A professor stood before his Philosophy class and held some items in
    front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very
    large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf
    balls. He then asked students if the jar was full. They agreed that it
    was. 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 that 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-Allah, your family, your children, your health, your
    friends and your favorite passions - and 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 things that
    are important to you".

    "Pay attention to the thing things that are critical to your
    happiness. Lead a life as a obedient creature of your Creator. Play
    with your children. Take time to get the medical check-ups. Take your
    spouse out. Play another game 18 hole at the golf course. 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".
