Publisher's Summary

E.M. Gray once observed, "The successful person has the habit of doing the things failures don't like to do. They don't like doing them either necessarily. But their disliking is subordinated to the strength of their purpose." This is the essence of Habit 3. You'll learn a new mindset of examining how you spend your time, and you'll learn how to focus your efforts in ways that create greater success both professionally and personally.

Stephen R. Covey's landmark book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has sold over 15 million copies. It has impacted lives around the globe because it shuns quick-fix superficial solutions and teaches timeless principles. You can dive into Habit 3 with this audiobook filled with never-before-published segments featuring Stephen R. Covey teaching this life changing topic.

Nothing New! Repetitive

Simply rehashed from his old audio materials. Why produced another Audio Program on First Things First? Nothing new and insightful. Very disappointed!

Very Good Audio program

Reviews basics from 7 habits but is much more succinct. Additionally giving tasks to complete gives a workshop feel and helps with integration.

Definitely less about the third habit...

So this was a bunch of snippets around time management and so forth....I was hoping on a focus of the third habit and some tools. Seems like a lot of recirculated gobilegoo about all sorts of topics. Dont waste your buck!

Falls well short of the seven habits

Having just finished the 7 habits and having been told that this book expanded on habit three, a key habit for me, I decided to dive straight in. In my opinion this audiobook is overproduced with lots of cheesy sound effects and it offered no new insights beyond what was covered in the 7 habits. I’m glad it was short.
