The tyranny of the urgent versus the important is probably familiar to us all. To work well, be effective and achieve the results with which we are charged is dependent not only on being well organised, but on doing first things first. This book reviews:1. Why some things are more important than others2. How to identify the key issues3. How working in this way can make you more productive and effective.
Overall, it highlights those aspects of time management that involve identifying and working with key priorities as a route to maximising achievement.
