When in your life seem, almost too much to handle,
When 24 Hours in a day is not enough (dengan exams yang banyak dan bertimbun),
Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee !
A professor stood before his philosophy class, @ psychology (pun boleh)
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.
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 – religion (islam dan iman, tazkirah....), family (usrah2~!), health (qowiyul jismi), friends (ikhwah laa, sape lg), passions (dakwah & tarbiyyah lah!!) –
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 (study laa kita, exam banyak kot!), house (nak berehat spy xmati kesejukan...x BM, Bereh, xbereh jugak, Dickensa ler) and car (skrg salji, asyik xon time je autobusem n tramwajej, xpun, jam!).
The sand is everything else –The small stuff (FB, epl, laptop xde, nak beli ipad bleh?, snow cap (la taghdob), mafla, selipar winter [hehe, penting kot winter ni], ayam MBM, nak makan ape esok ek? ayam kat banglo dh hbis dan etc]
‘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.
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 colleague or a friend.’ [utk jaga lewat malam ah]
Huhu, insyaAllah, kita rase cm dah sibuk sgt dh dunia ni, tapi sbnarnya, still ade mase utk kita berkumpul bersama utk aktiviti, berkongsi cerita, dan main futsal bersama dan hidupkan hati2 kita bersama spy xmati... kan kan...
InsyaAllah, hopefully, grab some points yg boleh kita amalkan... 'Ingat lah insan yang tersayang'...
