Curt Patrouille was an amazing speaker. I did not know exactly what he was going to be talking about before I got there–but he focused on resiliency.

Resiliency is a quality in objects to hold or recover their shape, or in people to stay intact.

He went through his own life struggles and broke everything down to relate to our own lives. He used the analogy of a glass jar representing us. Then you put in rocks to represent our highest priorities. Can you fit more? Yes. You put sand in and it fills in the cracks; representing the medium important priorities. Can you fit more than that? Yes. You can poor water in to still fill up the cracks. If you focus on the little things first and working your way from their and highest priorities last, you will not have enough energy for the biggest priorities in your life.
