Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death -- Albert Einstein
Priorities (The Mayonnaise Jar)
Just read this, again, from the Internet. Nice story to share.
When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, When 24 hours in a day is not enough, Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.
A professor stood before his philosophy class And had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, He 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.'
The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.
'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 - family, children, health, Friends, and Favorite passions. Things that 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, house, and 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. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner.
There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.
'Take care of the golf balls first -- The things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.'
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented.
The professor smiled. 'I'm glad you asked'.
It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.'
This post is in Bahasa. Ada seorang anak kecil kelas 4 SD yang selalu mengucap syukur dalam keadaan apapun. Ia tinggal di suatu desa di Negara Filipina. Setiap hari untuk sampai ke sekolahnya ia harus berjalan kaki melintasi daerah yang tanahnya berbatu dan menyeberangi jalan raya yang berbahaya dimana banyak kendaraan yang melaju kencang. Setiap kali berhasil menyeberangi jalan raya tersebut, Andoy selalu mampir sebentar ke Gereja untuk berdoa. Tindakannya ini diamati oleh Pdt. Agaton. Karena merasa terharu dengan sikap Andoy yang lugu dan beriman tersebut. Suatu hari ketika Andoy hendak masuk ke Gereja Pdt. Agaton menyapanya. Bpk. Pdt : "Selamat pagi Andoy, apa kabarmu? Apakah kamu akan ke sekolah?" Andoy : "Ya, Bapa Pendeta!" balas Andoy sambil tersenyum. Bpk.Pdt : "Mulai sekarang saya akan membantu dan menemani kamu menyeberangi jalan raya tersebut setiap kali kamu akan menyeberang. Andoy : Terima kasih, Bapa Pendeta." Bpk. Pdt : "sekarang apa yang aka…
AirPods is undeniably one of the greatest product from Apple. It's so light that you barely even having issue using it in your ears. With the W1 chip inside, connecting to your iPhone has never been this easier. Just open the lid, and it will connect automagically with your iPhone.
I bought AirPods in hope to use it when I'm doing exercise. Furthermore, listening to music while exercising is something that most of us are doing. Unfortunately, things are not always going as expected. I have been using AirPods during my morning jogging for quite some time. I sweat a lot, really a lot. I notice that slowly, corrosion mark starts appearing on my AirPods, both sides of them (left and right). Intermittently, any side or sometimes both of them cannot be charged. I need to keep pulling out and put back in the device to trigger the charge.
I bought this device on last November. To test my luck, I brought this device to Apple Store here in Malaysia. The guy said, since this is a water dama…
In today's post, we are going to see how easy it is to do digital signing using Java programming language. Java has provided libraries that you can use out of the box to produce digital signature. Let's get started.
A little bit of theory
For those of you who do not know yet about digital signature, this is basically a process that ensures that the content that you sent has not been altered in any way. Digital signature is one of the most important things to do in this digital world. Without it, it will be hard to verify data integrity.
Relationship with Hashing
At this stage, one must have noticed that to check data integrity, you can actually use a hashing algorithm. For example, when you download a file from the internet, they usually provide the hash (be it MD5 or SHA1 or higher) for you to check the integrity of the downloaded file.
Although this is true, digital signing actually provides you with more than just a data integrity. Digital signing has tight integration wit…
