2 What 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.
3 There 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!
6 So, 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.
