The time management experts at FranklinCovey share their five critical techniques for avoiding distractions and paying focused attention to our most important goals and tasks in our daily lives: This book "fits a real need in these turbulent, but opportunity-rich, times" (Steve Forbes). Every day brings us a crushing wave of demands: a barrage of texts, emails, interruptions, meetings, phone calls, tweets, blogs--not to mention the high pressure demands of our jobs--which can be overwhelming and exhausting. The sheer number of distractions can threaten our ability to think clearly, make good decisions, and accomplish what matters most, leaving us worn out and unfulfilled. Now FranklinCovey offers powerful insights drawn from the latest neuroscience and decades of experience and research in the time-management field to help you master your attention and energy management through five fundamental choices that will increase your ability to achieve what matters most to you. The 5 Choices is time management redefined: it increases the productivity of individuals, teams, and organizations, and empowers you to make more selective, high-impact choices about where to invest your valuable time, attention, and energy. The 5 Choices--from Act on the Important, Don't React to the Urgent, to Rule Your Technology, Don't Let It Rule You--will not only increase your productivity, it will also provide a renewed sense of engagement and accomplishment. You will quickly find yourself moving beyond thinking, "I was so busy today, what did I actually accomplish?" to feeling confident, energized, and extraordinarily productive.

Reviews

"No one understands time management and productivity better than the researchers and consultants of FranklinCovey. The 5 Choices provides new, exciting, and above all, practical insights that can help you cope with your overwhelming workload and realize your full potential, in and out of work."--Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson, Ph.D., Associate Director, Motivation Science Center, Columbia Business "A very timely book that fits a real need in these turbulent, but opportunity-rich, times."--Steve Forbes, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, Forbes Media "The 5 Choices book is the answer to the overwhelming and debilitating stress levels that have become part of every day. With accessibility now 24 hours a day, these choices provide the methods to get the right things done, not try to get everything done, and to feel like you made a meaningful contribution at the end of the day."--Kevin Turner, Chief Operating Officer, Microsoft Corporation "This incredible book contains practical solutions to modern productivity challenges that are insightful, well-researched, and yet simple enough to apply each and every day. The 5 Choices: The Path to Extraordinary Productivity includes the perfect blend of time management and prioritization tips, neuroscience research application, ways to address feeling overwhelmed with technology, and guidelines on how to manage our mental and physical energy. Utilizing the tools and recommendations provided will give you greater success at work and even more importantly, greater health and balance in everyday life."--Brandon Wade Anderson, Ph.D., Director, Organization Development & Talent Management, Transamerica, Inc. "The 5 choices is a great summary of what we know about the brain and managing our attention. It puts a lot of complex research in an accessible, digestible, and practical set of steps that can help people be more productive everywhere."--Dr. David Rock, Director, NeuroLeadership Institute "I live a hectic, high-energy and sometimes overwhelming life. As an executive for a large company, working mom and the wife of a NCAA Division I head coach, I constantly feel like I am swimming upstream--up early, getting kids to school, business travel, conference calls, meetings, after-school activities, and community events. While recovering from a serious horseback riding accident I read The 5 Choices and have applied its timeless principles, tips and techniques for managing my life, not just my work or time. I have had great results, which have allowed me to spend more time with family, coach my work team, and recover my health. If you live a hectic life or you want to be more fulfilled The 5 Choices is a must read."--Tabetha Taylor, Senior Director, Learning & Delivery, Manheim- AutoTrader "Sometimes in life you happen upon a 'game changer, '....that thing you realize can radically alter perceptions and outcomes. As I digested the principles and tools shared in The 5 Choices: The Path to Extraordinary Productivity, I realized I had indeed found a game changer. The 5 Choices gave me the insights and tools that would enable me to raise my personal bar, live in greater alignment, and increase the probability of achieving those goals that mattered most personally and professionally. The genius of this book is found in its real time "do-ability." If you're wired as the type of person who wants to live an 'extraordinarily productive' life, this book is a must read."--Jeff Hill, Senior Vice President, Global Sales, Team BeachBody "In The 5 Choices, the 'aha' for me is that busy does not mean important. So, busy is not the badge of honor, rather it is accomplishment of the important. That one paradigm shift is changing my life and the lives of those around me."--Kimo Kippen, Chief Learning Officer, Hilton Worldwide University "The 5 Choices: The Path to Extraordinary Productivity is the perfect complement to the most influential book I've read, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. It provides simple and meaningful solutions to today's paradox; it's both easier and harder to achieve extraordinary productivity in today's fast-paced, interconnected world. The 5 Choices can help you and your organization become extraordinary."--Steve Randol, Vice President, Nestle Retail Operation Center No one understands time management and productivity better than the researchers and consultants of FranklinCovey.
