Overview

First Things First is a book from the 'old but gold' category. Published in 1994, it challenged for the first time the popular 'get more done in less time' approach, taking a look at how one can be efficient while avoiding burnout.

Most of us live our lives by the clock. Appointments, to-do lists, and deadlines have us rushing from one thing to the next, while never getting to what actually matters. We can't even stop for a second to think of the meaning of our actions – or of our lives. This book will help you exchange the clock for a compass that holds your values and principles, so you can be sure you're facing true north at all times. Direction matters a lot more than how fast you're going.
