Rocks in a Jar
I really enjoyed this lovely story. While I have heard many different ways to convey the ideas presented in this story, none have done so as well as this story. It’s simplicity is masterful and was well thought out. It transported me to the professor’s class where I saw the demonstration and thoroughly understood the lesson given. The mental imagery, and new perspective afforded me by the analogous comparatives used in this story seem, to me, to likely be effective tools for my personal course correction. I feel strongly that the analogies employed in this story will be effective in helping me become aware of any misalignment in my chosen priority structure and the what I am actually prioritizing in any given moment, so I can more quickl refocus my mind, intentions and actions so how I want to prioritize my “rocks,” and how I am actually prioritizing them, thereby, /not allowing myself to get overly caught up in all of the tiny details, as I have done quite a bit in the past. If I do get caught up, I believe I will more easily be able to refocus, because I love rocks, stones,pebbles and crystals and literally have them as decor all over my home! This story was perfect for me, but despite my bias, it really is a story that I believe everyone will easily understand and gain true comprehension of the ideas it presents.
