Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The updated edition of the Stephen R. Covey classic that has sold millions while launching the time management revolution—now with a new Introduction from the author.

An astonishingly successful blockbuster whose ideas formed his first “habit” of The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People, First Things First continues to change the way readers organize their lives. Traditional time management suggests that working harder, smarter, and faster will help you gain control over your life, and that increased control will bring peace and fulfillment. But Covey and his coauthors, drawing on the first real breakthrough in time management in years, apply the insights of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to offer new solutions to the daily problems of struggling with ever-increasing demands of work and home. Rather than focus on time and things, they emphasize relationships and results, favoring effectiveness over efficiency. Offering a principle-centered approach, First Things First empowers readers to define what is truly important, to accomplish worthwhile goals, and to lead rewarding and balanced lives.

Synopsis:

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 so often our first things aren't first. 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.
