Up until then, traditional time management had suggested that working harder, smarter and faster would help you gain control over your life, and that increased control would bring peace and fulfilment. But with the first real breakthrough in time management in years, the authors of First Things First applied the insights of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to the 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-centred approach and the wisdom and insight that made The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People a No.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. Now, this updated edition focuses on the new pressures that we face in this digital age in which multiple screens, social networking sites, the 24-hour news cycle, among other things, all put increased demands on our time. It is more important than ever to apply the lessons and strategies from First Things First to our lives.Read Less
