The time management experts at FranklinCovey share their five critical techniques for avoiding distractions and paying focused attention to the most important goals and tasks in our daily lives.

Every day brings us a crushing wave of demands: a barrage of texts, emails, interruptions, meetings, phone calls, tweets, blogs—not to mention the high-pressure demands of our jobs—that can be overwhelming and exhausting. The sheer number of distractions can threaten our ability to think clearly, make good decisions, and accomplish what matters most, leaving us worn out and unfulfilled.

Drawing from the latest advancements in neuroscience and decades of experience and research in the time management field, FranklinCovey offers powerful insights to help you master your attention and energy management through five fundamental choices that will increase your ability to achieve what matters most to you. The 5 Choices is time management redefined for the twenty-first century. It increases the productivity of individuals, teams, and organizations and empowers you to make more selective, high-impact choices about where to invest your valuable time, attention, and energy.

The five choices are:

  1. act on the important, don’t react to the urgent;
  2. go for extraordinary, don’t settle for ordinary;
  3. schedule the big rocks, don’t sort gravel;
  4. rule your technology, don’t let it rule you; and
  5. fuel your fire, don’t burn out.

The 5 Choices will not only increase your productivity, it will also provide a renewed sense of engagement and accomplishment. You will quickly find yourself moving beyond thinking, “I was so busy today, what did I actually accomplish?” to feeling confident, energized, and extraordinarily productive.
