Tyranny of the Urgent

Many of you heard me mention a great little booklet called Tyranny of the Urgent! by Charles E. Hummel.
This book encourages us to realize that we need to give priority to the important things, rather than the ones that seem so urgent. It will give you strategies for taking control of how you spend your time, and help you to align your schedule with the things you genuinely value.  It is concise reminder of how we so often allow our latest whim, or the most frequently repeated and loudest demand from the many “squeaky wheels” in our lives to distract us from those things that have real value and importance. Hummels provides a simple formula for reassessing our priorities and developing a plan to maximize the likelihood that we stay focused on those things of real significance.  It is only 31 pages and on $1.50 on Amazon.  Click on the images to purchase! So it is a quick read. But it is something you will value for the rest of your life.
