Format: Hardcover
The basic premise of this book is that the secret to your success is determined by your daily agenda.

The author has a list of 12 areas to focus on daily that he believes are critical to success. He calles them the "Daily Dozen." They are:

1. Attitude
2. Priorities
3. Health
4. Family
5. Thinking
6. Commitment
7. Finances
8. Faith
9. Relationships
10. Generosity
11. Values
12. Growth

He spends a chapter on each of the Daily Dozen. For each, he notes what decision he has made in each area. As an example, for "attitude," his decision is "I am going to keep a positive attitude and use it to influence others." Then he provides suggestions on how to incorporate the items critical to success into your daily life.

He makes the great point that what you become is the result of what you do today. The only way to change your life is to change what you do daily.

This is a great little book that packs a powerful punch!

I bought this book based on the solid across the board 5 ratings of this book.
I just finished reading it (takes about an hour or two tops), and feel the need to discuss what it is and isn't as I was fairly disappointed. First, here is what the book is:

1) A list of the 12 most important areas of your life (honestly nothing new here) - each basically comprising one chapter. At the end of each chapter the author asks you to challenge what you will do to address this area in specifics.

2) A narrative sprinkled with several references to other self help narratives / speakers that the author has encountered including, given that the author is a Christian pastor, several references to faith / God / Christ etc. (No worries there he is a pastor after all).

Here is what it is not:
Concrete ideas or systematic suggestions to actually make a change. I was honestly surprised after reading that this book is included in the business section of the local big box bookstore.

My advice - if you are looking for a typical feel-good type inspirational book this is for you. But don't expect to be given the tools to precipitate change.

If you are looking for a book, especially in the business context, to facilitate change and make the most out of your working day I highly recommend the "Now Habit" by David Allen.

Format: Audio CD
You won't be disappointed by John C. Maxwell's helpful guide to time management. Maxwell's strategies will work for even the most time crunched people. Maxwell's program teaches people how to prioritize 12 things that truly matter and how to follow through daily in these areas. It is easy to feel as though you lack the free time to affect any change in your life, but Maxwell shows how devoting small amounts of time in the proper way can make all the difference. The audiobook version seems especially helpful for the book's audience - people with little free time. You can listen while stuck in traffic or cleaning the house, and figure out how to reorganize your life at the same time. Narrator Lew Grenville is an experienced performer and you might recognize his voice from National Geographic or the Discovery Channel. His voice is authoritative, clear, and pleasant to listen to, and meshes well with the subject matter. At a playing time of 3.5 hours, busy people should find this audiobook well worth their (multi-tasking) time.

Purchased the book for my husband who has not put it down. He actually has an interest in this book and is taking things from it. It has helped him prioritize his life. He has been a lot more relaxed and easy-going since he started reading this book. It has helped him let the less important things in life go. Quick and easy read for anyone who has a stressful, busy schedule and needs to slow down a little bit.

Format: Audio CD
I'm a working mom with very little time. The topic of this book appealed to me - how to be successful and reach goals by doing a little bit each day. Maxwell's twelve suggestions for daily goals make you definitely think hard about how to focus your energy. I found I could focus on a lot of change using his program and suggestions. You can incorporate these goals into a busy life.

The audiobook format was key for me. Audiobooks help me read when busy. The narrator had a nice voice, and the sound quality was very good. I highly recommend this to busy moms everywhere!

Good things often DO come in small packages!

This is a short but powerful book packed with good advice. If you are striving to find balance in your life and to "major in majors" instead of "majoring in minors," read this book. You can likely finish it in an hour or two - time well spent.

The key of course lies not just in reading but doing, as in any self-help book.

I really enjoyed these CDs. A great way to go about things if you don;t have lots of spare time to read. Maxwell is a gifted writer and the knowledge he shares is well worth it. I feel I have been able to make a difference in my life after listening to this.
