"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." -- Mark Sanborn, bestselling author of The Fred Factor and You Don't Need a Title to be a Leader "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." -- Booklist "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." -- Tuscon Citizen
