    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 goal is to gradually focus and of our time and energy in quadrant 2, thus reducing the amount of energy necessarily directed to quadrant 1 Having been disappointed by too many time management books in the past, which primarily purport to show one how to cram into the limited amount of time we have, another epiphany for me from Covey s book was that the issue isn t time management, but rather priority management That...

    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 ...
