Book Review: Today Matters by John Maxwell


Today Matters: 12 Daily Practices to Guarantee Tomorrow's Success

Book Description:
Most of us look at our days in the wrong way: We exaggerate yesterday. We overestimate tomorrow. We underestimate today. The truth is that the most important day you will ever experience is today. Today is the key to your success. Maxwell offers 12 decisions and disciplines-he calls it his daily dozen-that can be learned and mastered by any person to achieve success.
My thoughts:
I listened to Today Matters: 12 Daily Practices to Guarantee Tomorrow's Success (Maxwell, John C.) byJohn Maxwell last month on audio. I enjoyed it so much that I ended up getting the book and taking notes. In Today Matters, John Maxwell encourages you to not only make good decisions, but to add daily disciplines to make everyday a masterpiece. His "Daily Dozen" include: Attitude, Priorities, Health, Family, Thinking, Commitment, Finances, Faith, Relationships, Generosity, Values and Growth. Every "Daily Dozen" is filled with very practical ideas to implement coupled with questions to ask yourself. The conclusion show a very approachable way to start using them in your daily life. I found Today Matters to be a very encouraging and motivating read.
