What are the big rocks in your life?

Recently, I read a story discussing the time management. It goes like this.

A time management expert made a presentation to his audience to explain his point.
He took out a jar first, and placed a handful of fist-sized rocks into it. When it was full and no other blocks could be put inside, he asked the audience: “Is it full?” “Yes!” the audience yelled.
The expert reached under the table and brought out a bucket of gravel. He dumped some of the gravel in and shook the jar, causing the pieces of gravel to work themselves down into the spaces between the big rocks. He then asked the audience again whether the jar was full.
"Maybe not” They hesitated.
The expert pulled out a basin of sand from under the table and dumped it into the jar. The sand went into all the spaces left between the rocks and gravel. Once more, he asked them if the jar was full.
"No” They shouted.
The expert grabbed a bottle of water and poured it into the jar. Then he looked around and asked : “What is the point of this presentation?”
One person said: “The point is that however tight your schedule is, if you try really hard you can always find time to do other things, like study, reading and so on.”
"No”, the speaker answered, “The key point is that if you don’t put the big rocks in first, you will never get them in at all.”
After reading the story, I feel that the point is that we should do the right thing at the right time. Otherwise, if you miss the time, you may become regretful forever. Well, what are the big rocks in your life? For my part, it’s the dream that I want to fulfill and a cause I’m pursuing. How about you?
