Big Rocks for a Happier Life

Jan 29, 2020

Have you ever heard of the Big Rocks exercise? It is a wonderful visualisation of how we should prioritise the things that really matter in our lives so that we can be happy and fulfilled. After directing my clients to various video versions of this, I decided to make my own (above) to convey the message that I really wanted to get across. 

In essence, I want you to know that time is the great equaliser. We all get 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 52 weeks a year. BUT, how we choose to spend that time will determine if our life will be fulfilling, satisfying and happy.

What are the choices you will make?

In my example, the  jar represents your life and the time you have to fill. 

The sand (chia seeds) are all the little things that really don’t matter like: 

  • Emails
  • Menial tasks
  • Being mad at people for silly things

The pebbles (white beans) are the things that matter but aren’t critical like:

  • Your job
  • Your hobbies
  • Your car

The big rocks (oranges) are the really important things that money can’t buy:

  • Your family
  • Your friends
  • Your health
  • Your goals

If you fill your time with things that don't matter, then you'll be left with NO TIME for the things that really do!

So the message here is to give time to the important things first. If you prioritise your Big Rocks and make sure that you focus on the things that matter most, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish! Not only will you have time for the most important things, but you will also find that all those other things fit in as well. You may need to rearrange things a bit and juggle them around, but in the end, it all fits. 

In this way you can go from feeling frazzled , anxious and unsatisfied by focusing on the sand (chia seeds) and pebbles (white beans) to feeling happy and fulfilled by prioritising your Big Rocks (oranges).
