A Roadmap With Reflective Fodder Jan 4, 2008
If you are casting about - seeking a more reflective way to spend your time, Today Matters is a helpful guide. Maxwell combines a road map for goal-setting along with reflective fodder for how to approach your daily life. If you are seeking to make meaningful changes on how you spend your minutes or just need an anchor to help steady the waves of time, Today Matters is well worth the read.
Maxwell sets Today Matters up in a workbook fashion. Each chapter discusses a theme with significant real life examples followed with thought provoking questions and exercises. You can read the book straight through or use it as a text to foster change.
The book starts with an assessment of your current life habits benchmarking how attuned the reader is to the meaningful moments in his/her life. Maxwell provides inspiration and insight on how other individuals "make each day a masterpiece." While none of this is new to the seasoned professional who tries to cram everything into a busy life, the nuance comes from the approach and the habit changing concepts.
Maxwell adds creativity and thinking to the daily infrastructure. Americans, especially, are caught in "the doing" that some of the thinking and creating becomes, well, flabby. Maxwell's first chapter is titled, "Today Often Falls to Pieces - What is the Missing Piece?" While this title/question frames the search the book attempts to construct, it also points to the need to create a careful structure in our every day living so that we have the scaffolding that prevents meaningless muddles.
Each book chapter provides a specific area of focus that will lead to certain outcomes. Maxwell peppers the chapters with reinforcing quotes helping to mark the central tenet of the chapter. The chapter titles in their own rite serve as a prescriptive primer.

Unreadable Oct 12, 2007
Very poorly written. There are more quotes from other authors than original writing. He may be writing under the guise of being a christian writer, his bigotry and hate are shine through all too clearly - definitely not true christian values.
Go For It Sep 27, 2007
I recently attended a function that John Maxwell happened to be speaking at. He is a very engaging and insightful presenter. I had to pick up a copy of one of his books to hear more about what this guy had to say.
This is a well written and easy read. Anyone that reads this will come away with something. The book is well structured and I think it should be required reading for college students.
If you're feeling overwhelmed by all of the life's pressures, this book will aid in prioritizing. John Maxwell lays out some very useful techniques for managing the clutter in your life. More importantly, this book suggests that "the things you do today, will be realized tomorrow." Just buy it.
Read it TODAY; it MATTERS Jul 22, 2007
A friend loaned me this book by John Maxwell and after the first chapter, I put it down to go buy my own copy! I knew I needed to highlight the great, practical advice on how to live a balanced life that makes a difference. Leaders often forget to "feed themselves" and this book is definitely great food for thought! Maxwell's Daily Dozen will help you get a handle on your day to day living and in the process help you become a more effective and efficient leader. I have used his tenents in several motivational speeches in the last few months and in fact, used his book as a "speakers" gift at a recent conference. I highly recommend this book and the "plan for improvement" included in the last chapter!
