A Nice Perspective on Life

Some time ago, I came across a nice anecdote about time management. Since first hearing it, I have come across it several times in different versions. I am pretty sure one version is in one of Stephen Covey’s books (perhaps “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”). And there is a college version in which the punchline goes something along the lines of “there’s always room for beer.”

My favorite version is the one with a more profound application to life. The link above is one such version, and I have even printed out a hard copy, which is pinned up in front of my desk and re-read every now and then. It is a good reminder to slow down and think about life, perhaps even re-think goals and ambitions. In fact, I have initiated a few changes in my life over the past few years specifically because of such re-evaluations.
