A Lesson I Learned Today

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. Without speaking, he picked up a large, empty mayonnaise jar and filled it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full.

They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured it into the jar. He shook the jar lightly and 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. The sand filled the remaining gaps.

He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous ‘yes.’The professor then produced two bottles of beer 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 – God, family, children, health, friends, and favorite passions Things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the things that matter like your job, house, and 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.

So pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the dripping tap.

‘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 beer 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 beers.”

Can’t wait to be home to spend time with all my golf balls, maybe even while having a couple beers!
 

Pinterest and Attracting Brands

Katrina Klier, Senior Director and VP of Worldwide Digital Marketing for Microsoft,   tells us how brands can take advantage of the newly popularized social platform, Pinterest. Personally I think that Pinterest is an amazing way for brands to be recognized visually and marketed freely. As an artist myself, I visit the social website pretty much everyday to check out new trends and to gain inspiration. I think the key to using this platform effectively is in figuring out who your audience is and what is going to get that audience to repin.
