I look to this book time and time again, reminding myself of the difference between "important, but not urgent" and "urgent, but not important" tasks. It's a superb primer on best practices for time management, and well worth the time for any new manager who feels they have so much to do, too little time to do it, and no idea where to start. In conjunction with other priority-setting books and exercises, this helps develop a very effective personal "to-do list" and goal-setting plan. Recommended!

One of the best time management books - the basis for the work of Steven Covey. In fact, it appears that Covey took all of Bliss's ideas as his own.
