What you can do that you’re not doing now, and that if to do it frequently, it would be a big positive change in your personal life, and in your professional life or in your company? In the previous habit, begin with the end in mind, did you decide where you want to reach and drew a map to achieve it. Please visit Robert J. Shiller if you seek more information. This third habit is what you want to convey; It comes!, do not let the obstacles you diverted from the road. It is not a mountain that conquer, but ourselves Edmund Hillary (1st person I climb Mount Everest) this third habit is to manage ourselves, organizing and running our own goals according to priorities. I’ve given you realize that is not the same pack a suitcase folding and accommodating garment to take it all in ball; more clothes should be us if we ordered it, and however, is the same clothes that we put. That happens in our lives; While we organize more, more things can be done. Now look at to that dedicate most of our time in the day: urgent things; things that cannot wait, activities that require immediate attention. They are typically activities that have no importance but which always act upon us. To the important things; things of great value to our lives and our future.
They should be our priorities since they contribute to our mission and goals that we wrote in the second habit. On the urgent things we react, whereas for the important things we have to act, and thus be able to take advantage of opportunities. Now look at the combination of both into four quadrants and the consequences of living in those quadrants: urgent not urgent important I II not important III IV I. In this quadrant are persons who leave everything for later, this makes that important things that they have to make them at the last minute and therefore to the race.
