When it comes to priorities, you may have heard the term ‘Rocks’, first popularized by Stephen Covey in his book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. He defined Rocks as your most important priorities, the things you must get done before urgent things that come up as well as daily interruptions.
In EOS®, we took this definition further to define Rocks as the three to seven most important priorities for your company, the ones that must be done in the next 90 days.
To help you create the results you want for your business, we gathered these five blog posts to help you set, manage, and knock your Rocks out of the park!
