关键不在排定行事历的先后次序,而在排定优先顺序。

Effective leadership is putting first things first.

【顺序】

成功学大师柯维在《与成功有约》一书中阐述了成功人士的7个习惯,其中之一就是先做最重要的事(第一次就把事情在前)。他指出,计画与排定每周工作事项时,应以“重要性”而非「紧急性」做为考量,评估工作任务能否实现自我价值、实现目标、丰富自我角色和人际关系,不管在哪个行业,都是成功之钥。

他以时钟和圆规做比喻,解释决策不应只是依照时间先后,而应以原则与价值为圆心。对长期目标有助益的工作,应优先于看起来紧急、但实际上重要性不高的任务,因为重要但不急迫的任务,经常为人所忽略。

American educator, author, businessman, and speaker Stephen Covey authored the bestseller book 《The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People》. One of these seven habits is “First Things First”. Covey argued that we should schedule our work according to their importance, not urgency. We should evaluate whether our tasks help us self-actualise, realise our goals, and add value to our relationships.

He used the analogy of a clock and a compass. Solutions should not be formulated solely based on time, but also around core values and principles. Work that is important but not urgent should trump over work that is urgent but unimportant—the former is too often neglected by people.
