There are a number of videos available on Stephen Covey’s 7 Rocks principle about how if you get the ‘rocks’ in the right place it’s possible to fit everything into the small amount of time you have. This is the original with Stephen Covey himself and although it’s longer than many others, and is older, it is very humorous. This is useful for getting students to think about how they prioritise time and projects, especially when things feel overwhelming.

  

There are lots of shorter versions of the video for example this one on the Jar of Life

As well as using the videos this could be done as an actual classroom activity using a jar, along with rocks, pebbles and sand.
