Psychological Inertia: Two kinds in one story
以前ご紹介したある大学でこんな授業があったという。の元となっていると思われる英文です。

A while back I was reading about an expert on subject of time management. One day this expert was speaking to a group of business students and, to drive home a point, used an illustration those students will never forget.

As this man stood in front of the group of high-powered overachievers he said, "Okay, time for a quiz."

Then he pulled out a one-gallon, wide-mouthed mason jar and set it on a table in front of him. Then he 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 this jar full?"

Everyone in the class said, "Yes." Then he said, "Really?" He reached under the table and pulled out a bucket of gravel. Then he dumped some gravel in and shook the jar causing pieces of gravel to work themselves down into the spaces between the big rocks.

Then he asked the group once more, "Is the jar full?"

By this time the class was onto him. "Probably not," one of them answered.

"Good!" he replied. He reached under the table and brought out a bucket of sand. He started dumping the sand in and it went into all the spaces left between the rocks and the gravel. Once more he asked the question, "Is this jar full?"

"No!" the class shouted. Once again he said, "Good!" Then he grabbed a pitcher of water and began to pour it in until the jar was filled to the brim. Then he looked up at the class and asked, "What is the point of this illustration?"

One eager beaver raised his hand and said, "The point is, no matter how full your schedule is, if you try really hard, you can always fit some more things into it!"

"No," the speaker replied, "that's not the point. The truth this illustration teaches us is: If you don't put the big rocks in first, you'll never get them in at all." What are the 'big rocks' in your life? A project that YOU want to accomplish? Time with your loved ones? Your faith, your education, your finances? A cause? Remember to put these BIG ROCKS in first or you'll never get them in at all.

So, tonight or in the morning when you are reflecting on this short story, ask yourself this question: What are the 'big rocks' in my life or business? Then, put those in your jar first.

大切なのは、

どれだけたくさんのことをしたかではなく、

どれだけ心をこめたかです。

スピノザの世界

ふつうわれわれは、自分で目的を立て自分の自由な意志で行動していると信じている。ところがスピノザによると、自然の中で起こっているのはその逆である。言い表すことのできない衝動がすでにあってわれわれの行動を生み出しており、われわれはそれをいわば遅ればせに欲望として感じている。そして問われると、この欲望意識をもとに、自分はしかじかの目的に向かって自由な意志で行動しているのだと解釈し、自分にも他人にもそういうふうに答えを返すようになっている。(『スピノザの世界』pp.31-32;cf. pp.132-133)
