Affiliate Parable: Drop the Big Rocks First

Linda Buquet

I love Moose on the Loose Parables! Here's another good one that Paul just came up with. The story illustrates a couple points about the importance of making time for the big things in life and how being an affiliate offers you the freedom to make those lifestyle choices.

<blockquote><strong><a href="">Affiliate Marketing is like a Parable : Lifestyle Choices</a></strong>
"The affiliate stood in front of the group of high-powered over-achievers … who said … “Okay, it’s time for a little quiz” and the affiliate pulled out a one gallon demijohn and set it on the table in front of them.

The affiliate also produced about a dozen fist-sized rocks and carefully placed them, one at a time, into the demijohn. When the demijohn was filled to the top and no more rocks would fit inside, the affiliate asked, “Is this demijohn full?” <a href="">More</a>...</blockquote>
Note for those on this side of the pond. A demijohn is simply a glass bottle.
I had to <a href="">Google it</a>. ;-)

<strong>So the moral of the story is "If you don’t put the big rocks in first, you’ll never get them in at all”… </strong>We all know that working online can consume your time and your life if you let it! Don't lose track of what is most important.

<strong>What are the ‘big rocks’ in your life?</strong> Family, some important life goal, health/fitness, God, a charity or worthy cause, following your dreams, helping others and making a difference in the world?

Your affiliate lifestyle allows you freedom to work your schedule around your life priorities. Just remember to put the big rocks in 1st & let the rest fall into place.


I always liked that one. It's so easy to get distracted by the pebbles or even the grains of sand sometimes. Sometimes it's a good thing my kids are so willing to say what they want.
