´ Big Rocks, Slow Students, One Lesson -
September 23, 2016

Once upon a time was a professor who wanted to teach his kids about time management. So he took this big jar and placed big stones in it.

“Is it full?” he asked.

“Yes”, the class replied.

Then he took smaller rocks and replayed the whole charade and because this class is somehow very slow they fell for the same trick again and of course he pulled a bag of pebbles and finally some sand in. Moral of the story: start with the big important chunks of your day when planning what to do and get progressively smaller from there. If you stuff in small stuff, the big and more important will not fit any longer.
