人生原來還可以閑下來(電郵轉載)。。。

還在考試周當中,原本不想更新部落了,不過前幾天收到了一封很有意思的電郵,把它放上來和大家分享分享一下。
生命,還是有喝咖啡的時候的。。。

The Mayonnaise Jar


When things in your life seem , almost too much to handle,
When 24 Hours in a day is not enough,
Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class

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 - 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 other 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 partner out to dinner.

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 friend.'

哈…
讓我想到人們是不是也以這種精神,來擠公共交通?哈…

正經的,人面對問題時,一般皆以自己的老方法來對待,能慢慢添加新點子的是稍微理智的人啊…哈

谢谢~届时要多多支持噢~

顺吉 said...

我删除《心声~星洲的学记~》了~

顺吉 said...

大家在《方顺吉给黄明志的信》の留言都好长啊~

嗯~大说的话我都有用心去看,

我想说一个最大的问题,

他这么做,不是为了改善问题,

而是——为了自己出名啦、引人注意啦~

更可恨的是,

他以恶劣的手段来“说出大家的心声”

不但解决不了问题,

反而令问题恶化。

还有,Potong Saga

是拿回教的割礼——男生割包皮

来开玩笑的。

看到Potong Saga,

我想,回教党一定是气到跳,

只是安华和林吉祥在劝回教党

小不忍则乱大谋

忍一忍,下届大选才能执政中央政府呀~

(当然,这件事纯属虚构)

国阵政府没反应,

是因为他一定有

火箭这各分不清是非的政党在为他撑腰。

要不是火箭,和那一票支持者,

他早就在甘文丁扣留营吃牢饭了~

顺吉 said...

既然他不尊重回教徒,

那我也没有尊重他的理由。

不好意思,我是读马来学校的,

我有很多朋友是回教徒。

我之所以会想到割礼,

是因为P1广告灵感是源自于Potong Saga,

而Potong Saga就是在拿割礼来开玩笑。

这不是言论自由的问题,

是尊重人家的问题。

说实在的,我为《你割了没》广告和《Potong Saga》短片感到丢脸。
