John Maxwell has an effortless way of communicating life changing truths. In Today Matters he takes you through twelve key areas for our lives and shows us how giving time and attention to these areas each day, will have such a huge impact on what we do and who we are. Packed with practical examples the listener will feel connected to Maxwell's easy delivery of everyday steps which always feel achievable. I already had Today Matters in book form, but the audio book brings a whole new dimension to it. If you only ever have one John Maxwell book, then you have got to make it this one!
The genius of Maxwell is that he taps into what we already know. That our everyday endeavours allow us to shape our future. In an era of X factor quick fame and success its refreshing to read a book that reminds us of central truths... firstly, that we write huge chunks of our future and second, that we do this in the mundane choices of the everyday. The book is wonderfully composed and keeps you engaged... and finally nails the lie that values don't matter... they do, they always have... great read.
"Pragmatic, Pithy and to the point"
Great book, written version has many useful forms for the listener who would like to go further in your application of the principles provided. The book is great for someone who wants to get down to the issues and make changes. Not filled up with stories, or personal accounts. Good hard outlines, clear instruction, solid reasoning, good research. Well worth the investment
"Great Book for Change"
One of the better books I have read that are very descriptive in how too change your life on a daily basis. John Maxwell has always been an easy person too listen too (or read) and this book is another great one. His teachings are brilliant, and very easy too follow and take notes too. Highly Recommended!!!
First of all, you won't be disappointed by purchasing this book. Previously, I've listened to "Roadmap for Success". It changed my life for good. If "Today Matters" was my first John Maxwell book, it would make nearly the same effect. The only negative thing is overemphasize of religion. It's just my opinion of course.
You can always count on John Maxwell to give you a roadmap that is easy and logical to follow, and this book is no different. With this book, he broadens the typical list of things you might use as anchors in your life (you know the standard five -- family, work, financial,civic, and social)-- and thereby bring a broader set of tools to help align life with goals. He also provides good examples from his own life to bring it all together. Another good Maxwell book -- if you liked somd of this other books, you will like this one too.
"Helpful and useful"
This is one of the best self books I have every come across in years. If you want to have a productive day and a better future then you should read this book.
"LOVED IT!! THIS denotes what's next..."
Definitely a must read if your searching that something that will pull it all together in your life.
it's all about step by step AND discipline!!!!
"short but powerful!"
This book maybe short but it is packed with great and useful information, if you buy it and apply it it will change your life. My advice is to write down the 12 principles and hang it up.
"not much to say"
This audible book spends too much time at 40,000ft and too little beyond very general advice. At first I was enthused, and there were a couple quotes I found particularly valuable, but on the whole I finished feeling rather dissapointed.
This book really outlines exactly what I needed to do to grow myself and move forward! Attitude is real key!
Another inspirational book to add to my John Maxwell collection. This will give you the motivation to stay focused and be better at being you! Totally recommended.
