Today Matters by John Maxwell

I’m not sure why I’ve had John Maxwell’s book Today Matters for 13 years and hadn’t read it. Obviously I missed the clear message in the title…

I’m about to finish it today and I’m not sure what John would say, but I think this must be near the top of his most important work ever. The reinforcements are powerful and worth sharing here.

In the book, John provides twelve-daily practices to help each of us seize the day and covers areas such as controlling your daily agenda, making time for people you love, and finding success in your career. In each chapter John shares a “decision” that he’s committed to that helps each day matter:

1. Today’s ATTITUDE Gives Me Possibilities

2. Today’s PRIORITIES Give Me Focus

3. Today’s HEALTH Gives Me Strength

4. Today’s FAMILY Gives Me Stability

5. Today’s THINKING Gives Me an Advantage

6. Today’s COMMITMENT Gives Me Tenacity

7. Today’s FINANCES Give Me Options

8. Today’s FAITH Gives Me Peace

9. Today’s RELATIONSHIPS Give Me Fulfillment

10. Today’s GENEROSITY Gives Me Significance

11. Today’s VALUES Give Me Direction

12. Today’s GROWTH Gives Me Potential

Whether you’re seeking more structure to your daily pursuits in life’s journey, looking for inspiration to turn a corner, or simply becoming the best “you” that you can be…I really recommend this book.
