The Time Jar Model

I was reading an article in a magazine where this model came up. I liked it and so wanted to share with my readers. It is called the Time Jar Model.

Take an empty jar (time) and fill it up with rocks (top priority). Then add pebbles (things you enjoy doing) to it. Fill the remaining space with sand (things we ‘have’ to do) and finally add water (things that clutter up our lives and get in everywhere). This model is about balance, you make time for everything, and everything simply fits well where it is supposed to fit in, thereby increasing the efficiency and speed of the function.

How many of us are fighting this conflict of interests within ourselves? How many of us feel that there is so much to do and so less time? Probably all of us. I just hope this helps!
