The 5 Choices provides the methods to get the right things done, not try to get everything done, and to feel like you made a meaningful contribution at the end of the day.” —Kevin Turner, former COO of Microsoft For fans of Deep Work, Great at Work, and the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The 5 Choices is an essential guide for understanding productivity and time-management in the 21st century. Every day brings us a crushing wave of demands: a barrage of texts, emails, interruptions, meetings, phone calls, tweets, breaking news—not to mention the high-pressure demands of our jobs—which 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 frustrated. From the business experts at FranklinCovey, The 5 Choices is an exploration of modern productivity. It offers powerful insights drawn from the latest neuroscience research and decades of experience in the time-management field to help you master your attention and energy management. The 5 Choices is time management redefined: through five fundamental choices, it increases the productivity of individuals, teams, and organizations, and empowers individuals to make selective, high-impact choices about where to invest their valuable time, attention, and energy. The 5 Choices—like “Act on the Important, Don’t React to the Urgent” and “Rule Your Technology, Don’t Let It Rule You”—will not only increase your productivity, but 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 confidently realizing “I did everything I needed to accomplish today—and did it meaningfully.”

Editorial Reviews

“A very timely book that fits a real need in these turbulent but opportunity-rich times.” Steve Forbes, chairman and editor-in-chief, Forbes Media
The 5 Choices book is the answer to the overwhelming and debilitating stress levels that have become part of every day. With accessibility now twenty-four hours a day, these choices provide the methods to get the right things done, not try to get everything done, and to feel like you made a meaningful contribution at the end of the day.” Kevin Turner, chief operating officer, Microsoft Corporation
“This incredible book contains practical solutions to modern productivity challenges that are insightful, well researched, and yet simple enough to apply each and every day. The 5 Choices: The Path to Extraordinary Productivity includes the perfect blend of time management and prioritization tips, neuroscience research application, ways to address feeling overwhelmed with technology, and guidelines on how to manage our mental and physical energy. Utilizing the tools and recommendations provided will give you greater success at work and, even more importantly, greater health and balance in everyday life.” Brandon Wade Anderson, PhD, director, Organization Development & Talent Management, Transamerica, Inc.
The 5 Choices is a great summary of what we know about the brain and managing our attention. It puts a lot of complex research in an accessible, digestible, and practical set of steps that can help people be more productive everywhere.” Dr. David Rock, director, NeuroLeadership Institute
“More than just delivering their sentences, Kory Kogon and Adam Merrill (with brief segments read by the third author) use their performances to sell themselves and their solid commitment to their thinking. They sound like experienced teachers—serious about their research, proud of their careers in the FranklinCovey organization, and always clear and inviting. Their suggestions are sophisticated updates of Steven Covey’s time-management writing. Illustrating their words with motivating examples from their consulting work, they describe accessible strategies for managing one’s decision making, attention, and energy—the three ingredients of productivity that we can control in the face of today’s unprecedented distractions. Anchored in the familiar framework of the four-part ‘important/urgent’ grid, this compelling lesson has everything you’ll need to spend more time on what’s really important.” AudioFile
