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; how focusing on efficiency and control increases the gap instead of closing it; how to determine if what you're doing is really important, or only urgent; how to overcome the tremendous gravity of habit; how to put people ahead of schedules; and how to lead your life, not just manage your time.
Offering a principle-centered approach and the wisdom and insight that made The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People a #1 best-seller, First Things First empowers listeners to define what is truly important; to accomplish worthwhile goals; and to lead rich, rewarding, and balanced lives.

"I can't think of anyone who wouldn't be helped by reading it." (Larry King)
There is nothing useful in this book. It is no more than drivel. The author speaks for the sake of speaking. It is a complete waste of money.
Its a brilliant book. Its message came across better in the form of an audio book read by authors themselves. The book has profound wisdom about our modern day lives, and pinpoints where thongs are going wrong. Life changing.
