The message here is for you to have a good look at those things with which you fill your life. If you fit into your day all the little things that you know aren’t really beneficial to your goals, then you may not fit the ‘big’ things in.

The Jar Of Life

Do you often find that you do not have enough time in your life to do all the things you would like to do?

Consider the following...

Organising Priorities

Image that this jar represents the amount of time you have each week to do all the things you need to get done during the week.

Organising Priorities

Organising Priorities

The gravel represents some other important things that you wish to get done each week.

Is the jar full?

Organising Priorities

The sand represents less important things that you do that may not be necessary.

Now you can say that the jar is full.

Organising Priorities

As you can see, by prioritising the most important things in your life, you still have room for the little things you would still like to do.
