Golf Balls & the Important Things in Life - What Really Matters 5 Years Later

When a friend shared this awesome allegory with me on Facebook recently, I thought it sounded familiar.

I did a bit of research and sure enough, it was something I posted here ...just over five years ago.

As I now remember, the quaint, quality-of-life reminder was just what I needed back then ... and I've got to say, it feels equally pertinent today.  Hence it's re-publication now.

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day isn't enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee... and the golf balls. 

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had 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 the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
