Customer Reviews For "Tyranny of the Urgent"Write Your Own Review
We live in an all too busy world where everything is done quickly, every information is at our fingertips and relationships are continued through online social networks. Thus we have a sense of urgency in doing work or responding to a "friend" online and we often forget to take a step back and slow down. This little booklet shows us that even though Jesus was probably alot busier than us and had a lot of important jobs to fulfil, He knew how to prioritise so that God's work came first. His ministry may have been short but it is said in the bible that his work was completed. Reading this book helps to understand the difference between urgent and important and how we should go about prioritising, by reflecting on what Jesus did and giving some useful tips. Highly recommended read.
