        One day an expert in time management was speaking to a group of business students and, to drive home a point, used an illustration those students will never forget.

        一天,一名时间管理专家在向一群在商业这一行打拼的学生讲课时,为了清楚地说明一个论点,他用了一个令学生们永远不会忘记的演示来表达。

        As he stood in front of the group of high-powered over-achievers he said, "Okay, time for a quiz.” Then he pulled out a one-gallon, wide-mouthed Mason jar and set it on the table in front of him.

        他站在这群精力充沛、成就出类拔萃的学生面前,说道:“好的,我们来做个测试。”然后,他拿出一个容量为一加仑的广口玻璃瓶,放在他面前的桌上。

        He then produced about a dozen fist-sized rocks and carefully placed them, one at a time, into the jar. When the jar was filled to the top and no more rocks would fit inside, he asked, "Is the jar full?"

        接着,他拿出十多个拳头大小的石块,将它们小心翼翼、一块一块地放进瓶子里。等石块填满到瓶口,再也塞不下时,他问:“(你们说),瓶子被装满了吗?”

        Everyone in the class said, "Yes."  上课的学生都说:“满了。”

        He replied, "Really?" 他的回应是∶“真的满了吗?”
