The Jar symbolizes your Life – what you put into it and what you leave out. Your inspiration, motivation, values, intentions, actions, and the resulting effects and outcomes are product suggested by rocks, stones/pebbles and sand. Our tendency is to concentrate our energy in our actions and values (vis. stones), and/or our outcomes and results (sand) without the substance and foundation of inspiration and motivation (rocks), leading us to ask, “What’s the Point?” In order to give substance and foundation to your Life Jar, it is necessary to “Know Your Why.” (https://www.startwithwhy.com/learnyourwhy) Two videos for your consideration: Simon Sinek’s TED Talk that explains “How Great Leaders Inspire Action,” (including knowing your Why) https://www.ted.com/talks/simon_sinek_how_great_leaders_inspire_action Michael Jr.’s “When you know your ‘why’ then your ‘what’ has more impact, because you’re working towards your purpose.” https://youtu.be/LZe5y2D60YU
