A group of students, based on their careers, came together to visit their former university professor. The conversation quickly turned into complaints about stress at work and in health.
Giving his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and came back with a large coffee pot and a variety of cups – clay, plastic, glass, crystal, some looking good, some expensive, some fun – telling them to help themselves to coffee.
While all the students were holding a cup of coffee in their hand, the professor said: “As you can see, all the good-looking cups were expensive, they left the plain and cheap.
Make sure the cup itself does not add quality to coffee. In many cases it is very expensive and in some cases even hides what we are drinking. What you all really want is coffee, not a cup, but understand that you went for the best cups …
Now consider this: Life is coffee; jobs, money and position in society are cups. They are simply tools to capture and contain life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor does it change the quality of life we live.
Sometimes, by focusing only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee. Prepare coffee, not cups!
The happiest people don’t have all the best. They just do all the best.
