Reviews - What do customers think about 10 Natural Laws of Successful Time and Life Management?
I thought a day planner was such a waste Jun 13, 2008
I thought a day planner was a waste until I read this book. Now I don't laugh when I see someone carrying one.
Hyrum Smith is the inventor of the (Franklin) Day Planner, so naturally he is able to sell it. He developed it is an outgrowth of time management training seminars that he has taught all over the world. In the first few chapters he details how to use your day planner to take notes, set reminders in the future, and keep it all connected.
Time management turns out to be a small part of this book. Hyrum's thesis is you will never be happy with managing your time unless your use of time is in sync with your personal values. Ergo, the title, Time and LIFE management. He elaborates a model of our behavior to show this. Have you ever discovered a belief or prejudice that you had to unlearn the hard way? And once you did, relationships with your significant other, coworkers, and/or friends got better? Hyrum's model attempts to explain these "aha"s and epiphanies.
I found my reading of this book very timely for myself; others who are not so introspective may find it profound, while I would expect some to find it boring.

Excellent Supplement for the Covey System Jul 10, 2005
This title is an excellent supplement to the time management/prioritization system of Steven Covey. The author's thoughts and principles fall into line with the very effective and popular approach of Steven Covey. If you would like some background on the Franklin/Covey time management system, this book by the founder of the Franklin Quest Planner is a must-read.
Takes a personal approach to organization and management May 25, 2005
When he wrote this book, Hyrum Smith was CEO of Franklin Quest, which has since merged with Stephen Covey, Ph.D. to form Franklin Covey. This company conducts time management seminars for corporations, organizations, and government agencies. Franklin Covey also sells a wide variety of day-planners, scheduling books, calenders, and other time management tools.
Smith contends, and rightly so, that there is more to managing time than getting things done. By understanding one's own value system, he says, one can decide what matters most, set priorities, and accomplish goals. The marketing strength of the company keeps the book alive.
