This version is designed to be listened to in one sitting, or taken in as brief lessons in a few spare minutes each day. It covers such topics as:

  • Priorities

    This is an awesome book! If your reading this your thinking about it so go for it. He uses 12 topics or principles that every person should have in their day. He calls it the daily dozen. I feel if you could just use one or two and apply them to your life it would be worth the money.
    I have listened to this book three times and plan on listening to it more until I have all the daily dozen memorized with the facts behind them. This book really has the ability to change your life if you let it.
    The thing about the daily dozen is they arent principles out of reach. Anyone can live by them or apply them.
    And on the finance principle, let me recommend Dave Ramsey for help on that.
    On the Faith principle, let me recommend Jesus Christ. He changed my life more than anyone ever has.

    I Loved It!

    The audio book content, the narrator, every thing perfect!
    This is one of the very few audio books I intently enjoyed listening to, from the beginning to the end.
    It makes us become aware, with the very essential aspects of life that we take for granted or even never given thought to.
    It is very well elaborated and easily presented by the narrator.
    I definitely recommend this book to any one, and I mean any one!
    I will unquestionably rat it five stars.

    definitely a book to help you prioritize your life

    I listen to about 60 books per year and several of them are by John Maxwell and many of them are not. and this book here is by far in the top five books I have ever listened to.

    Good but not enough

    it cannot be denied that the book offers some good knowledge of being productive person. However, I expect more strategies or practices honestly.

    Save your money!

    This book is a disappointment; the author regurgitates the same old "don't let your life slip away" lines. He presents a few commonly understood "principles" and spends the other 90% of the book talking about himself to illustrate his points. This would be fine if the reader learned something new....not the case here. Save your money.

    If you want Success in any area of life

    This was the first book I was determined to finish on Audible and I’m so glad I did. This will reshape the way I think and go about my life along with other resources. And I’m going to listen to it many more times because I know there are more gems that I could learn from.

    Really enjoyed

    I consider myself a life long learner and personal growth is my favorite area to study. I gained some new insight from this book. I appreciate that analogies as it helps me to remember the lesson being taught. Making Today Count reminded me which values I want to improve upon and ways to do it.
