Stephen R. Covey bietet mit seinen Co-Autoren eine fundierte Analyse samt Bewältigungsstrategie unserer zunehmend unüberschaubarer werdenden Arbeitswelt. Erstmals erschienen 1994 und 2002 neu editiert scheint es fast zeitlos.

„First things first“, so der Titel im Original, klingt furchtbar simpel. Jeder der sich mit dem Thema aber schon einmal auseinandergesetzt hat, weiß, wie schwer es ist, diesem Leitsatz im schnelllebigen Büroalltag tatsächlich zu folgen.

Gerade Führungskräften stellt sich häufig die Herausforderung eben kein Micromanagement zu betreiben, sondern sich Zeit für das Wesentliche zu nehmen. Warum es sich lohnt und wie es funktionieren kann, zeigt Covey mit seinen Co-Autoren klar verständlich.

Aber auch Mitarbeitern, die keine Führungsaufgabe ausüben, kann es als Augenöffner dienen und mittelfristig die eigene Karriere befördern.

Denn die Aussagen und Hinweise sind brandaktuell, eine manchmal erschreckende Bestandsaufnahme unserer Zeit, aber auch unserer Möglichkeiten der Gegenwehr. Absolut empfehlenswert!

Gutes Buch. Aber amerikanisch. Viele Geschichten und viel blabla. Europäisch könnte man es wahrscheinlich auf 30-40 Seiten zusammenfassen.
Inhalt berechtigt und fundiert. Manchmal belehrend, aber das ist ja das Ziel. Lernen und sich selbst verbessern.
Also klare Empfehlung, wenn man Muse hat.

A solid Stephen Covey book with good insights but not necessarily the best one. I liked 7 habits of highly.. better.

Honestly, very disappointed. Full of continuous deliveries of very vague idea. Maybe I expected too much after reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

First Things First is a truly great book for which the author deserves all the credit. I want to use this occasion however to make a clear point about all the other books the author has been churning out over the years. It is true as somebody here suggested that many of the themes in one book are repeated over and over again in the other books. Applying the wisom of First Things First I can only recommend to anybody who is considering buying one of his books: Say Yes To the Important and say no to the unimportant, Buy First Things First and don`t get caught in the Covey Marketing trap. I don`t say this to ridicule Mr. Covey`s other books. But the great thing about buying with Amazon is to be able to read the reviews of actual readers and then to make informed decisions.Unfortunately Covey`s postulated "abundance mentality" led him to overflow the market with still another book that is hammering home the same message. I have no problem whatsoever with Mr. Covey making a great deal of money with his books. I just think that it is a pity that he is somewhat undermining his authority on the issues by trying to get people hooked on more and more insignificant material. If one buys a copy of the book First Things First and additionally the one tape program of First Things First, one will get the most benefit from Covey. Read the book, excerpt the key-points and listen to the tape frequently, it will change the mind-set, the conscience and thereby finally the behaviour. And don`t get addicted to Covey!

Einfach zu lesen und mit guten Tips und Arbeitshilfen ist dieses Buch ein Effektivitäts-Booster. Wer allerdings das Buch 'The seven Ways...' gelesen hat, ist mit dem Inhalt bereits vertraut.

Gekauft mit einem Schulterzucken, denn Bücher oder Ratschläge wie ich meine Zeit optimal nutze hatte ich genug.
Durch den für mich einprägsamen und interessanten Schreibstil von Covey interessierte mich das Buch trotzdem, und die Neugierde hat sich gelohnt.
Die planerischen Passagen der Tabellen und trockenen Organisationshilfen habe ich etwas "schneller" gelesen, aber die Heranführung an das Thema sodass es auch nachhaltig hilft ist sagenhaft.
Daher mein Tipp: auch kaufen, wenn der Schrank mit ähnlichem Material vollsteht ... und noch besserer Tipp: wirklich lesen ;-)

First, let me say that i'm a mexican citizen so please do not be so hard about my english, any way i'll try to do my best.

i like to be an honest human being, so about "FIRST THINGS FIRST" it was a gift i got from a friend in San Antonio tx., and
even knowing that i have not ended the book yet because my job, in the first chapters i had readed i have found many ideas
to increase my succes as well as my productivity in the office, but the most important thing i have found is the real meaning
of the word "share" and this is because i'm starting to learn that i do have to have time for my family as well as for my profession

i do not know whats going to happen when i finish of read this "CLEVER WAY TO SHARE THE MEANING OF LIFE" but i'm sure that at the
end there is only going to be one word to "STEPHEN R. COVEY"............THANKS A LOT

I first read this book when the hardcover edition was first published, to the best of my recollection we are talking about 5 years ago. Before then I had read almost every book written on time management. The only thing I learned from them was that they all basically gave the same advice, and very little of it was helpful. Meanwhile I was still getting bogged down in little tasks and piles of papers, instead of living my dreams.
This book provided the direction I needed. When I first read about writing a personal mission statement, I did not believe I could write a one page document, never have to revise it, and still be guided by it for a lifetime. Well I was wrong, and they were right! When life gets crazy, I can usually find the answers in my mission statement, or in this book
Thank you Dr. Covey

This is the best book on time management I have ever read. "First Things First" puts "Seven Habits" into action. It takes the "Habits" principles--sometimes a bit too abstract (and obtuse) and shows you how to put them to work. If you find you don't have time for the people and things that are really important in your life, read this book. If you take the suggestions seriously, you will never again short-change what you love. And, if you do, you will be at least be aware of your choices. A word of warning, though: Covey has an entire catalogue of products to sell you to support "First Things First," but the company does seem to be committed to "principle centered" business
