Know the value of your time

November 26, 2012

Success is Simple: do the right thing, in the right way and at the right time.

There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.

The combination of hard work and smart work is efficient work.

I will narrate you a story told by my Guru, it might be fruitful to you
Take a large pickle jar and fill it with tennis balls till it is absolutely full and not a single extra ball can be filled in it, the Jar seems full.

But if you put a handful of marbles in it, they easily slide in and still allow you to put a few more.

Once you have filled as many marbles as you can in pickle jar, the jar will look completely packed with no room for anything at all.

But truth is that if you put some sand in it, it will easily fill the tiny gaps that remain between the marbles and the balls.

In spite of the jar being completely full with no space left unfilled, we can still pour some water in it, for the sand to absorb.

Now consider reversing this procedure. It would not be possible to fill the jar with anything besides water since that itself would occupy the space. The space in the jar remains the same whichever way you try filling it. It is the order in which you fill it that determines how much you can fill it.

Time is similar to pickle jar, the amount of time that a person has in a day remains the same for everyone i.e.24 hours a day. It is the way that a person utilizes this time that determines its Value.
