I'm getting more done in less time, but where are the rich relationships, the inner peace, the balance, the confidence that I'm doing what matters most and doing it well?

Does this nagging question haunt you, even when you feel you are being your most efficient? If so, First Things First can help you understand why we so often prioritize things that are unimportant to both our larger goals and our inner happiness. From the author that brought you the New York Times bestseller The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People comes a guide to building your work on the principles of effectiveness so that your life can spent cultivating genuine relationships, investing in pursuits you enjoy, and achieving balance in both your personal and professional lives.

In First Things First, Stephen M. R. Covey advocates categorizing tasks by urgency and importance so that you can focus on what actually needs to be done in the limited amount of time that you have. Using personal examples and insight from years of business experience, he argues for a new way of looking at your “to-do” list. Rather than offering you another clock, First Things First provides you with a compass, because where you're headed is more important than how fast you're going.

    I really enjoyed the CD, listened to it twice. I was disappointed at first that it was only 1 CD, thinking I had gotten too much of an abridged version. But it turned out to have all the great information, with none of the superfluous stuff, so i really enjoyed it. I've listened to Covey before, and I must say that this title encompassed all of his great ideas into one 1 hour + CD. I give him kudos for getting such great ideas and information, condensed into a simple listen that doesn't take too long to finish, and can be listened to over and over easily.

    The CD's were scratched. Needless to say I returned it without listening to the whole book.

    Already in his previous books. If you've listened to 7 habits and 8th habit, you don't need this.

  • Oh Books

    Mr. Covey is a boring reader. Although the content is interesting and thought provoking, most of it I have heard before.
