In the middle of a class on time management, the teacher said, "Time for a quiz." He pulled out a jar and set it on the table. "How many of these rocks do you think we can get in the jar?" he asked the audience.
Everybody said, "Yes."
"Wrong" he said. He pulled out a bucket of gravel, dumped it in the jar, and shook it. The gravel slid all around in between the big rocks. He asked once more, "Is the jar full?"
The students said, "Probably not."
He then grabbed a pitcher of water and began to pour it into the jar.
One of the students spoke up: "If you try, you can always fit more into your life."
"No," the teacher said. "That's not the point. The point is this: if I hadn't put those big rocks in first, I would never have gotten them in."
