Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
11/04/2013
Corporate consultants Loflin and Musig (Juggling Elephants) team up again for this insightful guide to effective prioritization. Acknowledging that today's busy world can leave us overwhelmed, the authors assert that identifying and focusing on your "IT" (Important Thing) is the fundamental step to achieving personal and professional success. While this conversational, slim volume doesn't offer groundbreaking wisdom, it does offer proven techniques for how to become more productive. The authors provide motivation and practical tips on how to overcome inertia, roadblocks, or obstacles to success; they suggest concentrating on incremental improvements. The pages are peppered with quotes from notable individuals such as renowned sports coaches Lou Holtz and Vince Lombardi, as well as former General Electric CEO Jack Welch. Those looking for academic research or revolutionary methods to help them focus will find this work lackluster, but those seeking time-tested techniques for getting things done, along with a good dose of inspiration, are sure to appreciate this valuable read. (Oct.)
Mark Sanborn
“If you really want to achieve IT, then get this book. The authors detail a simple but powerful approach to achieving more of what really matters in your work and life.”
Booklist
“For readers with endless to-do lists and more tasks than time in a day, the authors offer a practical guide to sorting out the important thing that eludes them....[A] practical guide that counsels balance between the personal and professional in the process of accomplishing IT.”
Tuscon Citizen
“Loflin and Musig believe it is important to define and focusing on “it.” “It” is The Important Thing....By following the advice in their new book, it should be easier to sort through our many priorities to determine what is most important and downgrade the rest.”
