A professor and his philosophy class

A professor and his philosophy class | PR Law and ethics clips | Scoop.it

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.

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.’

 

‘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—-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—-and 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, your house and your 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.

 

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

 

Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.

 

Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

 

I came across this while i was scrolling through my tumblr dashboard and I figured it would be good to share. I usually don't take the time to read long posts such as this, but for some reason it caught my attention. I am so happy I did. This story was so fufilling to read and made me think so much. It makes you realize how fortunate you should be, even if the little things in life don't always go how you planned.

7 worst international aid ideas

7 worst international aid ideas | PR Law and ethics clips | Scoop.it

Considering we are looking at a case study of the company TOMS, I thought this article would be suitable for my scoop.it.  A lot of companies use underprivileged countries as leverage for sales, all the while making more profit than they elude too.  I feel the companies/organizations written about in this article are great examples of poor ethics.
