THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “The Best Way to Keep a Man is to Let Him Go (among other things)”

Lisa Alexander of Pasadena, California, says, “Practical Relationship Guide…and Story of Love!!  I enjoyed reading this entire book because it offers a rare perspective on relationships, from a woman who has been in a relationship for many, many years.  Any woman, at any stage of her life or relationship can read this book and take away something important to think about.  Thank you.”

Stephen Covey’s “Four Quadrants”

Are you running around in a frenzy much of the time?  If so, you can make your life more peaceful by using Stephen Covey’s “Four Quadrants.”

Quadrant 1:  Important and Urgent

Quadrant 2:  Important, but Not Urgent

Quadrant 3:  Not Important, but Urgent

Quadrant 4:  Not Important, Not Urgent

You should spend most of your time in Quadrant 2. If you do this, you can take care of the things in your life that are important so that they do not become urgent.

Work to limit your time in Quadrants 1 and 4.

This piece was posted on the Internet by Bruce Keener in 2007, but Covey’s “Four Quadrants” is timeless.  It shows an illustration of the quadrants, identifying activities for each, and Bruce describes his experience with it.
