This in an exceptional audio production of the author's 1993 book on how to get your time and life organized around what matters to you. A lot of the advice is technical--things like goal setting, using a day planner, and making adjustments based on results--but his illustrations are so well crafted that it flows more like a novel than a self-help book. The meat of the audio is in the author's marvelous insights on how to understand belief systems and personal rules, and habits. He emphasizes learning from one's mistakes and staying flexible. Read by George Lee Andrews with gentle intelligence, humility, and moral confidence, this is a must-hear audio for anyone wanting a more integrated and effective life.
