This book is an easy read and although the information is somewhat common sense, it's not something that people generally cognizantly think about on a day-to-day basis. It's a good reminder and it helps bring these things to the forefront of the mind. He provides relevant and helpful examples throughout.

I have read this book ...
I have read this book since about 10 years ago, which is one book that is very good in uplifting terms about the personality I have ever met. Finished reading it, I bought about 6 pieces more, then I gave it to my sister & close friends. In overall, the book is very good because: * A clear systematic discussion * Writing style that is easily understood * Clarified by using the analogy, many case examples, drawing diagrams, etc. * Comprehensive coverage of our selfhood I am sure this book will be very useful for everyone who reads it.

I got this book about 15 years ago as a gift from a publisher, lend it to a friend who lost it and brought a new copy for me. Still, I didn't touch it until I am searching for important answers to life this year. In summary, the author believes that to be truly effective, our center of life must be based on timeless principles, because money, church, friends, family, work, pleasure or even self are inconsistent and unreliable. If you depend on these insecured sources as your center, you will end up reacting according to their ever changing action upon you. You feel good only when these factors are in good conditions. In time management, there are quadrants: 1. Important and Urgent (Deadline-driven projects) 2. Important but Not Urgent (Relationship building) 3. Not Important but Urgent (Phone calls) 4. Not Important and Not Urgent (Pleasant activities) We always end up busy in Quadrant 1 and 3 because these are urgents. Yet to be truly effective, we need to invest time in the important Quadrant 2 activities. In fact, by investing in Quadrant 2, we are preparing ourselves to handle future Quadrant 1 activities. For example, if we invest in building up our knowledge and upgrading our skills (Quadrant 2 activities), we can avoid making ignorance mistakes that will lead us into handling Quadrant 1 activities such as correcting those mistakes. The author gave a very good example :- Suppose you were to come upon someone in the woods working feverishly to saw down a tree and asked him "What are you doing? You look exhausted!". He replied "Can't you see? I'm sawing down this tree for over five hours!". You suggested him to take a break and sharpen that saw, but he replied "I don't have time to sharpen the saw, I'm too busy sawing!" Sharpening the saw is Quadrant 2 activity that will prepare you to work more effectively in sawing down that tree, which is a Quadrant 1 activity.
