Rocks or Sand
Some people think you should take care of the big things first and the small things last. It’s like filling a jar with rocks first and then sand. Everything fits. If you put the sand in first, there isn’t enough room for all of the rocks.
But what do the rocks and the sand represent? Tasks? Responsibilities? A to-do list? What if the rocks and the sand are like the good things, the fun things in life? Is it better to fill your life with a million little good things or a few big good things?
If you fill your days with a million delightful things, then you may not have room for the Very Big And Important And Ultra-Fun Things. You may want the Big Things in first, and that’s okay. It’s up to you.
(Note to self: There is more sand than there are rocks.)
