Based on the proven principles found in Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s best-selling business book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, This is a video titled Big Rocks teaches us that when we’re faced with a mountain of work (like building a car) and we need to prioritize, the best way to approach these projects (and your life) is to start with the Big Rocks First.
