An inspirational story about life/work balance.

A teacher fills a mayonnaise jar with golf balls (and it’s full), then adds pebbles (and it’s full), then adds sand (and it’s full), then tops it off with two cups of coffee (and it’s full).

The moral of this story is intuitive and simple, but implementing it in our lives is less straightforward. How full is your jar?
