Covey is a good reader for his own work. Born in Salt Lake City, he has a voice that suggests a Scandinavian/Midwest heritage with broad "o's" and precise articulation. Covey's accent adds credence to his theses on time management. He contends that time management has evolved from organizing tasks and working more efficiently to prioritizing values to work more effectively. This short program abridges Covey's third book, a somewhat redundant tome built upon his other two books. This program, nevertheless, is useful in its own right, especially to listeners not yet familiar with Covey's work. D.W.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
Larry King CNN Covey has reached the apex with First Things First. This is an important work. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't be helped by reading it.
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 in 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 focusing on time and things, First Things First emphasizes relationships and results. And instead of efficiency, this new approach emphasizes effectiveness. It tells us:
* Why we feel a gap between how we spend our time and what's deeply important to us
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.
