      Another terrifically helpful book from the pen of Stephen Covey I personally found especially useful the two by two matrix he discusses as a way to organize yourself The four resulting quadrants include 1 Important and Urgent2 Important, Not Urgent 3 Urgent, Not Important 4 Not Urgent, Not ImportantSimply put, most people spend far too much time in quadrants 3 4 We also spend too much time in quadrant 1, not that those issues are unimportant, but because we don t manage our priorities well The g [...]

      This book was a slow read for me, it was really hard for me to get into it, I especially had a hard time with all of the different quadrants of organization and such, I m just not into that Although, there were a lot of things that I did like about the book One point brought up is that we use busy ness as a way to validate ourselves and to feel important, and I think that s very true, and I am starting to realize that it really doesn t matter I don t have to be involved in a million different th [...]

      I have this book so marked that I stopped marking it I have the audio and the paper back It s a book I reference to and read multiple times If you re looking for guidance on your day to day activities, if you re struggling with your priorities, Stephen Covey s philosophy on the compass vs the clock will sure help you.

    7. Heidi on said:

      For me, this was a new way of looking at a balanced life Sometimes we focus so much on the urgent things, that we forget about the important things that aren t necessarily so urgent Very insightful It made me think that I need to focus left on getting things done, and on getting the important things done

      Don t buy the Kindle version but DO READ the book.This Kindle version is frustrating, disappointing and missing important content It may say it has new technology and audio visual but I found no links or content to it They had some colored infographs but all the diagrams, worksheets and charts they mention are not available anywhere in this version The format they used for the Kindle must have been previously used for a print book as numerous word breaks are found throughout the Kindle version O [...]

      I first read this book in about 1990 and the content is as relevant today as it was back then I learned so much from this book that has served me well for 19 years of professional work, and every time I reread a section it just reminds me how important if is to make sure you are doing first things first.I feel that Covey has a great mind when it comes to achieving your personal best, and this book puts the rubber to the road The materials in this book about setting goals, translating your goals [...]

      Not as big a jump for me personally, as this book is a bit of a refried 7 Habits There are some decent tips pointers.I recommend skimming this one rather than intently reading it.

      If you think that living in emergency mode is not the optimal way of living, you are right and this is the perfect book to read in order to reflect about real arguments that support your way of thinking and to realize how what you always knew deep inside is true And most importantly, if you need a support to be acompaigned in the journey of creating a balanced way of living, this is the book I loved it and this is exaclty what I was looking for.
