First Things First

While effective executives actively manage her time, her contribution, and the application of her strengths, she cannot be all things to all people.

She knows that executives must get many things done, and do them effectively.

There are just too many areas that require attention.

Instead, effective executives concentrate on the few major areas where superior performance will produce outstanding results.

The method is, therefore, concentrating on doing one thing at a time, and on doing first things first.

Sophisticated multitasking in the computer is just an appearance. For people, multitasking is just an illusion.

Peter Drucker asserted this in his book. “If there is any one “secret” of effectiveness, it is concentration.”
