First Things First is a revolutionary guide to managing your time by learning how to balance your life. 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 with the first real breakthrough in time management in years, the authors of First Things First apply the insights of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to our daily problems of struggling with the ever-increasing demands of work and home life. Rather than focus on time and things, First Things First emphasizes relationships and results. And instead of efficiency, this new approach emphasizes effectiveness. Offering a principle-centered approach and the wisdom and insight that made The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People a #1 bestseller, First Things First empowers listeners to define what is truly important; to accomplish worthwhile goals; and to lead rich, rewarding and balanced lives.… (more)

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.

First Things First from a different perspective. While we are stuck with 'efficiency' and managing the stream of Quadrant III (Not urgent and not important) things that is coming at us each and every day, this books encourages us to focus on those Quadrant II things (Important but not urgent) that we seem to be neglecting.

To live, to love, to learn, and to leave a legacy. The book focuses on planning your week with these roles and human endowments in mind. Fulfilling these needs requires a careful thought-out plan of Quadrant II activities that help you live your life's mission statement instead of getting caught up in an 'urgency addiction'.

Stop. Think. Plan. And live your life in a new way with a new focus. A good read that helps you look at your life a little differently. ( )
