Today Does Matter - What are You Doing With It?

Dr. John Maxwell is one of the most recognized business and motivational speakers of our day. He has authored more than thirty books, focusing his work on leadership and its impact on business, church and personal life. I have been a student of Dr. Maxwell's works for years now and would like to focus this article on one of my favorite books by him: Today Matters.

"Successful people make important decisions early in their life and then manage those decisions the rest of their life." - John C. Maxwell

This book centers around this theme and the truth in it. If you want to accomplish something in life, you have to have goals and a direction to carry you there. Most people spend their lifetime "wishing" they could achieve certain dreams and aspirations, when the secret to achieveing those things is in simple planning and organization.

This book, Today Matters, focuses the reader on 12 simple policies that a successful person must master to achieve their life's mission and their goals. These principles are:

1. Today's attitude Gives Me Possibilities.
2. Today's priorities Give Me Focus.
3. Today's Health Gives Me Strength.
4. Today's Family Gives Me Stability.
5. Today's Thinking Gives Me an Advantage.
6. Today's Commitment Gives Me Tenancity.
7. Today's Finances Gives Me Options.
8. Today's Faith Gives Me Peace.
9. Today's Relationships Give Me Fulfillment.
10.Today's Generousity Gives me Significance.
11.Today's Values Give Me Direction.
12.Today's Growth Give Me Potential.

What a powerful collection of life habits are featured in this book. I am still in process of mastering these concepts, but what I have already learned and implemented has changed my life, my family and my business. I not only have several copies of the book, but have the CD version and listen to it frequently in my car.

If you ramble aimlessly from day to day, please get a copy of this book and start to put these concepts to use in your life. You will not be sorry!

If I can help you in any way along your walk in life, please don't hesitate to call me. Take a look at Dr. Maxwell in action in the following video:
