In First Things First , Stephen R. Covey relates a story about a seminar presenter who stands at the front of the room with a big, empty jar. The presenter places several fist-sized rocks in the jar and asks the audience, "Is the jar full?"

"Yes," they reply.

The presenter then shakes a handful of gravel into the jar, sliding the smaller stones between the larger ones. He asks again, "Is the jar full?"

"Probably not," the audience cautiously answers.
