Description

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 challenges 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.

Now FranklinCovey offers powerful insights drawn from the latest neuroscience and decades of experience and research in the time-management field 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 21st 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 5 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
  • 5. Fuel Your Fire, Don't Burn Out

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Valuable content damaged by jarringly bad reading

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend my friends read the paper or e-book themselves. The content is 10-out-of-10 but the reading by the authors is painful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite part was about how a leader can install this thinking in their organizations.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kory Kogon and Adam Merrill ?

Any professional who knows how to read so that it sounds natural and how to teach concepts from non-fiction books.

Did The 5 Choices inspire you to do anything?

Oh, yes. Despite the painful reading by the authors (and I get that my complaint about the unprofessional reading is just my opinion), I pushed through. Lots of valuable insights. The best insight: my tendency to find new, improved organizations systems can be escapist. My work is to lead myself not wait for the perfect system.

Any additional comments?

Can you re-record it? I'd buy it again to hear it read well. Can the producers find better ways to dissuade authors who shouldn't from reading their own work?

Sound Platform

I like strategy of the 5 choices. I thought I wont learn anything new. I am happy I picked this book. Downside the narrators are horrendous let the experts do that next time please. Another thing is that this is more of a personal platform, the book is trying to link it to enterprise but I nah it wont fit that much.

Content is good, Narration is bad

The content of the book is very useful however the female narration for the audiobook is not good. You feel like you are being shouted at and it is very grating on the nerves. So instead of feeling motivated after listening, you just feel irritated.

A Sub-par Franklin Covey Product

To my mind: this book is a sub-par Franklin Covey product, it has nothing on “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” and “Speed of Trust”, the material seemed cold and sterile, as it had too much dependency on neurological facts and the underlying assumptions then alluded too much to the dark-side of human behavior, a pessimistic view on human-nature using ideas and phrases such as “dopamine hits” that impugn the motives of human-nature in a cynical light which causes an unneeded pessimistic confusion of humans as ultimately selfish beings.

Lastly the voice recordings of the authors are awful:

I felt like was being scolded, harped, and harangued by the television series “Carmen Sanediego’s” The Chief” (by actress Lynne Thigpen) through most of this audible book, this tonality was so jarring, distracting and disturbing, that it made me want to turn the audible app off and/or hurry through the book.

Starts out good with a catchy title and intro

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Kory Kogon and Adam Merrill ?

No

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment

Any additional comments?

This book lacked any usable substance. Too many references to quadrants, statistics and technical jargon to make any part of this useful.
I found myself disagreeing with much of what the authors were trying to say.
the constant change of narrator was confusing and very difficult to keep track. The narrators did not sound interested in the topic and the experience fell flat for me.

What files?

This audio version refers to files that are not available. I could benefit from the visuals they are referencing. The voice of the female narrator sounds like she would be excellent if this was a live in person presentation. It jus comes off shrill in this format. But I liked the content. Very insightful and easy to implement.

Terrible female narrator

Kory? I apologize for the harsh criticism but you have no business narrating audiobooks. The pitch of your voice inappropriately spikes on the wrong words in every sentence and it's frustrating to listen to you.

I pushed through the preface hoping you wouldn't keep trying to read your own book but every other chapter seemed to be yours. I had to stop listening to what seemed to be a promising book. It's too bad.

Multiple Narrators

Having multiple narrators was somewhat distracting. Some of the examples could have been a wee bit shorter with the same end results.
