Reviews - What do customers think about Today Matters?
This book will change your life-Best book on leadership. Jan 23, 2007
This is by far the best book on leadership. It covers everything that one needs to know on leadership. Most book, as they cover leadership, talks about the attitude, action and discipline but John Maxwell has taken leadership to a greater level by incdluding health. As a nutritionist and working in a hospital, I see that most people forsake their health to succeed and then I watch them having to slow down to catch up to life and find life real priorities which is first our relationship with ourselves and with others. People forget, without you there is no leader, so if you forsake your health to succeed you will die not accomplishing what you intended to accomplish. LIke most leaders Maxwell learned the hard way, he had a heart attack that almost killed him. The book covers everything one needs to know, impacting your world everyday and not putting it off for later. Today Matters. What we do today impacts what we do tomorrow. This book was so good that I gave a seminar of leadership based on this book and got a standing ovation. Everyone wanted to talk to me. I encourage everyone to get this book and do the exercise at the end of each chapter.
Excellent Book Jun 26, 2006
This book has a lot of great principles for taking action today and making your tomorrow better.
Quick and Practical May 6, 2006
This is the second book that I have read by John C. Maxwell, and boy am I glad I did. I am currently on my second reading of this book.
This book is the kind of book that you can review every so often to just make sure you are still on track, and firm up some decisions you may have made, but are letting slack.
I chose to read this book a chapter per day. This means that it actually takes two weeks to read if you don't skip a day, though it can be read MUCH faster. I just read it the first time through and didn't do any of the practical exercises that follow each chapter. I don't recommend you do it this way.
If I had to do it all over again, which I am doing, I would do the practical exercises as I came to them. I think you will get the most benefit by putting things into action. Start moving on them right away, and you will begin to see a change.
This book is very readable, it isn't dense at all. The material though simplistic, which is a good thing, can bring about deep changes if you apply it.
If you have read other books of the self-help, motivational type you might read an example or two that you have read elsewhere. This wasn't a problem for me, and all of the examples are very appropriate for the material presented.
I liked this book so much that I bought a copy for my Mother. I hope that she reads it and passes it on to the rest of the family. This seems like a book that would be good to read as a family, and would benefit from discussion. The sooner you get your children reading this book, the better. If they buy into it while they are young, look out world!
Every Moment Counts. Sep 29, 2005
TODAY MATTERS is a fine book by John C. Maxwell, best-selling author of "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership." A noted expert in leadership and ethics, he has written an engaging blueprint to maximize our day, while developing lives of purpose and meaning.
Maxwell offers a holistic and spiritual focus, touching on the integration of body, mind and spirit. In his "12 Practices," he examines attitudes, priorities, health, family, thinking, commitment, finances, faith, relationship, generosity, values, and growth. I particularly enjoyed the reflections and exercises at the end of each chapter. The material is both timeless and fresh; often, the author presents what we already knew, but need to remember.
I have embraced many of Maxwell's suggestions. In doing so, I have improved myself concerning organization, persistence and determination, while achieving a greater sense of inner peace. The structure of the book allows for both thorough reading as well as selective exploration of those areas in which the reader recognizes the need for improvement.
