You may have heard the story of a professor who walked into his class carrying a large box and a rather large empty glass jar. Without saying a word, he placed both on his desk and started to pull large rocks out of the box and into the jar until the jar had all the large rocks that it could contain. He asked the class, “Is the jar full?” The class answered, “Yes.” Then the professor started to take out a bag of pebbles and continued to pour them into the jar. Then picked up the jar and shook it. As he shook the jar, the contents -- the pebbles found their way into the spaces between the large rocks. He asked the class again, “Is the jar full?” Again, the class answered, “Yes.” Now the professor continued to take out a bag of sand and started pouring it into the jar and then shook the jar again, then poured more sand in the jar, repeating the process of shaking and pouring the fine sand into the jar. He held up the jar so the class could have a good look, then asked the class again, “Is the jar full?” Once again the class answered with a resounding “Yes!” Then the professor grabbed a large bottle of water from the box and started pouring the water into the jar containing rocks, pebbles and sand until it overflowed. Again the professor asked the class again, “Is the jar full?” The class now wondering what the professor would pull out of the box… again and answered with a questioning “Yes?” Okay, great story! - Right? But what does the story have to do with choices and change? The professor explained the illustration this way. The Jar is your life. The large rocks represent the important things in your life -- your core values, your character, your spouse, your children and your family. Anything that is so important to you that if you lost it, you would nearly be destroyed. The pebbles represent less important things like your career, your education, etc. The sand and water is everything else -- the material things, the small stuff, the less important things in your life. If you fill your life with the pebbles, sand, and water, there is no room for the things that really matter. Ask yourself this question… If we were meeting three years from today, what changes would have happened, personally and professionally, for you to feel satisfied with your progress when we meet? Start taking action today on those tasks that will contribute to your dream life and ultimately, the path you want to travel. You must concentrate on the activities each day that will produce the results you want in the future. Remember, making the same choices today will not get you different results next week! What is your life going to look like in 2015?
