Publisher's Summary

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 challenges of our jobs - that 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 for the 21st century: 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 are:

1. Act on the Important, Don't React to the Urgent
2. Go for Extraordinary, Don't Settle for Ordinary
3. Schedule the Big Rocks, Don't Sort Gravel
4. Rule Your Technology, Don't Let It Rule You
5. Fuel Your Fire, Don't Burn Out

Great audio... no files to support it

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Kory Kogon and Adam Merrill ?

I bought this book for $20 and it is terrific but the audio files do not come with it and they are not easy to find online.

Valuable content damaged by jarringly bad reading

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend my friends read the paper or e-book themselves. The content is 10-out-of-10 but the reading by the authors is painful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite part was about how a leader can install this thinking in their organizations.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kory Kogon and Adam Merrill ?

Any professional who knows how to read so that it sounds natural and how to teach concepts from non-fiction books.

Did The 5 Choices inspire you to do anything?

Oh, yes. Despite the painful reading by the authors (and I get that my complaint about the unprofessional reading is just my opinion), I pushed through. Lots of valuable insights. The best insight: my tendency to find new, improved organizations systems can be escapist. My work is to lead myself not wait for the perfect system.

Any additional comments?

Can you re-record it? I'd buy it again to hear it read well. Can the producers find better ways to dissuade authors who shouldn't from reading their own work?
