“Make Time for Rocks, not Sand.”

iPhone Life Magazine - - Productivity -

Olivier Plante CEO of Fleksy “I keep the time-man­age­ment anal­ogy about peb­bles, rocks, and sand in a jar present in ev­ery­thing I do. The jar is your to­tal time avail­able for all your tasks, rocks are your crit­i­cal tasks, peb­bles are im­por­tant but nonessen­tial, and sand is ba­si­cally filler. I plan my rocks and peb­bles ahead of time; they re­quire time and are the big­gest tasks I have to do. For me, sand is smaller an­noy­ances like no­ti­fi­ca­tions and in­ter­rup­tions. If you fo­cus on them, you'll never have time for the big tasks. Re­mem­ber that you can only fill one jar per week!”
