This mayo jar full of golf balls might just give your life new meaning (VIDEO)

For those of us who are visual learners, you’ll want to watch this viral video all the way to the end.

The new year has come and many of us are focused on decluttering our spaces, organizing our schedules and getting our lives in order. After the hustle of the Christmas season, we’re feeling motivated to get things together, but this awesome video recently posted by Meir Kay has us thinking a little deeper about all those resolutions. The video, which is part of Kay’s “A Powerful Lesson” series has amassed over 100,000 views on YouTube.

Using a large empty mayonnaise jar, some golf balls, small pebbles, sand, and beer—yes, beer—this college professor challenges his students to think about priorities in a way that makes a whole lot of sense to us. It’s easy to get caught up in the little things in the life—the distractions in most of our lives abound—but he reminds us to keep our eyes on what’s truly important. The visual he shows is worth watching—especially for those of us who are more visual learners. The impact is there on the faces of these thoughtful college students, and we had the same reaction! Give this video a watch (it’s totally worth the 3 short minutes), and then be reminded about which things are the “golf balls” in your life, and which things are the “sand.” Oh, and don’t forget the beer!
