Let us give you a glimpse of what the book has to say. 

 

About the Book: 

In First Things First, businessman and author Stephen R. Covey proposes a new strategy for time management and enables readers to maximize their usefulness by setting preferences so that they can constantly have time for the things that truly matter. 

This clear and comprehensive analysis is ideal for anyone looking for an opportunity for formal advice on time management: it features thorough research of earlier techniques to time management and organization, a justification of their benefits and drawbacks, and a harmonious discussion of Covey’s approach. It also introduces the methods Covey uses, containing the Eisenhower Matrix, the main objections of his work, and related processes, namely the ABC method, giving you all you need to comprehend this insurgent guide to personal development. 

 

 

This book educates you to use your time effectively, meaning you focus more on what you’re spending your time on than how much time you're spending. Learn how to specify your preferences, schedule daily and weekly levels, and find win-win reliefs among people. 

The bookmarked a revolutionary departure from traditional information on time management, which inclines to underline speed and control, as it concentrates instead on outcomes and the personal objectives of each individual to achieve overall achievement and fulfillment. 

If you are looking for more books on time management, consider this book - When :The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing.

HOW I GOT THE RIGHT LOTTERY NUMBER FROM A SPELL CASTER: I am a 59-year-old IT worker and it was going to be our 25-year wedding anniversary but we had no money to celebrate it. I was given an assignment in the office so I went online to search for answers then I saw testimonies where people thanked lord Bubuza for giving them the right lottery winning numbers, I was very interested to win too so I contacted lord Bubuza via WhatsApp: +1 951 442 2214. Lord Bubuza responded, saying he will cast a spell and reveal the lottery winning numbers with his spiritual powers. I provided the items He needed to cast the spell and he gave me 6 numbers after casting the spell. I was so confident of winning so I went to a convenience store and bought a $10 Jumbo Bucks ticket from Gate City Express on East Lee Street in Greensboro and went home. I sat outside and scratched the ticket. When I saw that I won $1,000,000. My name is Licette Griffin, How can I thank Lord Bubuza enough?

My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. Email emutemple@gmail.com Phone/WhatsApp +2347012841542.

Hacknet Credit Specialist is truly amazing. I have been trying for years to get rid of 2 bad accounts on my credit report. So I contacted him from a credit blog, he was able to get Capital One to completely delete their tradeline off all 3 of my reports. He did the same on my second account; and also cleans off my student loan of $54,000 and I got a high score of 795, he has been completely transparent and extremely communicative. Very affordable, I highly recommend him HACKNET567@GMAIL.COM +1 6464502754. Don't hesitate to get in touch with him for credit fix

I saw many people recommending the services of XAP Credit Solution and I am lacking much knowledge about how to better my credit score. I am 41 and have made a couple of poor choices in the past. I'm desperate to have my kids grow up in a home of our own. I needed help that would lead in that direction and XAP came highly recommended. Yes Xapcreditsolution at gmail dot com didn't disappoint, he fixed my credit and raised the score to a very high score of about 812 from low 500s. I was able to get my first house. Also help to recover fund. Thanks to XAP and his team.

My scores were at low 600's and I had few negatives and judgements. I have 14 credit cards, almost 70K in credit and I was curious - what is the road to an 800 credit score? Someone reliable recommended XAP Credit Solution on reddit and I’m grateful I wasn’t adamant in yielding to his advice. I'm already a homeowner as it is today. I had 1 late payment from 1 year and 10 months ago which was marked as paid on time. I am happy to report I finally hit 800 on two reports (802 on Equifax, 790 Transunion and Experian 800) and the judgement is no longer on my report. The Chex system has been fixed as well. Hit XAP up via +1 (320) 200-9409 or email xapcreditsolution@gmail.com. Goodluck!
