Summary

If you never have enough time, this material is for you. Most people suffer from "time famine" - there's more to be done than there is time to do it. Making list after list with no end in sight, your only accomplishment is frustration. The motivational speaker and creator of the highly successful Franklin System, Hyrum W. Smith, shows you how to organize your time and how to organize your life. By applying The 10 Natural Laws, you will increase productivity and you will increase inner peace. As a result, every aspect of your life will manifest greater satisfaction.

Franklin Planner

Yes, this book is largely about using the Franklin Planner. But I read the book almost ten years ago and bought my Franklin Planner, and the two combined to be life-changing for me. I have ADD and lived in chaos before this system. I wish I'd found it sooner.

So, if you're not interested in the Franklin Planner (now combined with the Covey system) you probably won't want this. But if you really need help finding sanity in the chaos of your life, you might want to give it a try.

Buy Our Stuff!

I've only been an hour into this title before realizing that "The 10 Natural Laws" is no more than a shameless plug for the author's popular day-planner. While I have no problem with him mentioning it, and there are some great tips to be had - it's distracting to hear the product brought up every so often. The first 20 minutes are spent with a lot of self back-patting and fluff about how the author started his company and how great it felt to watch his company go public (a big sarcastic yay!). A more appropriate title would be "How to Use the Franklin Date Planner"...Not a bad title, mind you...if you're into infomercials.

Time well spent

It was very organized, practical and applicable. Definitely had all the elements I was looking for, and then some!

I feel that the lessons I learned are applicable and will be helpful in achieving what the title promises.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

It is narrated well, and also written well. Great balance of stories and examples, as well as specific instruction.

Easy to understand, with engaging intonation and voice.

Autobiography, no advice

The author spends most of the time talking about how great he is very little helping you improve your life. Waste of money.

Time tested principles

I enjoyed reading this book so much I purchased the audio version. The written work contains so much value for me because I realize I really have all the time in the world I need to get what I want to get done. The author gives some very helpful tips and helps the reader take responsibility for managing his or her time. Time management indeed translates into life management! A very illuminating read!
