Do you think of your life as an hourglass?

i have read a book called HOW TO STOP WORRYING AND START LIVING ,there is one paragraph writes as following: i want you to think of your life as an hourglass.You know there are thousands of grains of sand in the top of the hourglass;and they all pass slowly and evenly through the narrow neck in the middle.Nothing you or i could do would make more than one grain of sand pass through this narrow neck without impairing the hourglass.You and i and everyone else are like this hourglass.When we start in the morning,there are hundreds of tasks which we feel that we must accomplish that day,but if we do not take them one at a time and let them pass through the day slowly and evenly,as do the grains of sand passing through the narrow neck of the hourglass,then we are bound to break our own physical or mental structure. Actually we everyone has many tasks to do everyday,people always saying that life is the sum up of events,so we shouldn`t worry about how to do so many tasks in a day,the only thing we should do is that try to do every task with you heart and make every task be best,then all the tasks will be best accomplished!

Hi Guoguanghua, thanks for sharing that statement, paragraph and the example. I feel the example explain in a very good manner of clearing tasks one at a time. But with current environment we force to multitasking. So i would say we are an flexible hourglass in current edge. But is really true if we were to clear the case one at a time and step by step because it reduce the chances of creating error and mistake. Also, with that we will not miss out the require tasks. Thanks for sharing and appreciate that.
