2What can a jar teach us about prioritizing? This jar represents one day- 24 hours- no more, no less.We are going to use different objects to fill the jar. The objects represent different things in our life.
3There is no more room for rocks, but….. As you know, a day fills up fast. So does a jar!Is the jar full yet?There is no more room for rocks, but…..
4… there is plenty of room for pebbles. Is it full yet … there is plenty of room for pebbles. Is it full yet? There is not much more room for pebbles, but…
5… there is, of course, room for a lot of water. Is it full now?It certainly is!
6So, what’s the point?The significance of the rock, pebble, and water activity is the order in which items were added to the jar.The jar is like your time; just as the big rocks automatically made room for pebbles and water, you can automatically make room for “fun stuff” when you take care of your big priorities first.
