The Important Things in Life
生活水准中首要的各项

Aphilosophyprofessor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began,wordlesslyhe picked up a very large and emptymayonnaisejar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches indiameter.
课前,随机组合美学医生扶在讲台上,他眼皮底下的几上放了几样产品。上课后,医生甚么也没说,他拿起一个又大又空的蛋果子酱坛,之后往里的混理当2石扇形的小石块。

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
之后,他问各位另外坛是并非开始了满了?各位们都说明就是说。

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.
之后医生就拿起一瓶小水刷石,之后把浪漫星雨倒进坛里,他呵护地摇了摇坛。然小水刷石就进到石块的间隙中去。

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
之后,他又问各位另外坛是并非开始了满了?各位们都说明就是说。

The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up the remaining open areas of the jar.
之后医生就拿起一瓶其它没用的产品,之后把其它没用的产品倒进坛里,其它没用的产品又补足进了间隙中。

He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “Yes.”
之后,他又问各位们,另外坛是并非开始了满了?各位们大量同意说:“开始了满了。”

“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the important things C your family, your partner, your health, your children C 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 C like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else, the small stuff.”
医生说:“目前,我愿望尔把生活水准做为是另外坛,浪漫星雨不怕别首要的各项--尔的豪门,战友,满意,宝宝,吐过把除另外里面的另外产品都而灰头土脸,尔的生活水准诚然则是充满的。水刷石不怕别对尔并非最首要但也本的产品,假如是你的办事、宝马、车。而其它没用的产品不怕别另外的无关紧要的小各项。”

“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your 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 your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party, or fix the disposal.”
医生持续说:“要是你先把其它没用的产品放进另外坛,那坛里就不合租房放小水刷石和石块了,尔的生活水准从而然。要是你将每家人工夫和精力工夫都放在别小各项上,你就不会有精力工夫还得别名实相符对你首要的产品。将精力工夫放在别名实相符和你的幸福息息有关的各项上。和你的宝宝一起儿戏。带你的战友流出载歌载舞。而办事,扫除平房,展开场庆祝,摄弄产品,另外各项老是会有工夫的。”

“Take care of the rocks first C the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”
“第一认真思考浮石,即别名实相符首要的各项。布局好你的首要各项。另外的可其它没用的产品。
