Book Description

What if everything we have been told about how to have a successful life, about how to manage our time and money, and about how to take care of ourselves was completely wrong? What if there were a better way to live that not only leads to more happiness, more satisfaction with life, more peace, and less stress. What if it could also produce more money in your pocket, more meaningful relationships with friends and family, and a deeper and more personal understanding of who God is in your life? If there is such a way to live, wouldn’t it be worth investing some time discovering how to make it work for you?

The great news is that there is another way to manage your time, your money, and your talents, a way that was once common place and common sense. However, just as “common sense” today seems to be quite uncommon among the masses, so too is this once common wisdom missing. In fact, this piece of ancient wisdom has been largely lost to the modern world, not because it ceased to be effective, rather because it ceased to be applied.

Zinsmeister does a great job connecting the need for generosity, saving and responsible spending in "The 10-10-80 Principle". This book is a must read for anyone living in this crazy 21st Century world. With the gimmicky plans of recent years fully exposed to the light of day, this ancient principle of 10-10-80 stands up to any scrutiny. It is sure to work wonders for anyone who tries it, and Jason does a masterful job of explaining the model and laying out how to implement it in your life. Buy this book and what you learn from it will pay for it hundreds of times over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Must Read! October 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once I dove into this book, I simply could not put it down. It is apparent from page 1 that J. Zinsmeister is passionate about the ancient teachings of the " 10-10-80 Principle". Zinsmeister flawlessly explains the principles in an easy to understand format, and even provides links to worksheets to help us through the journey. I can not imagine that there is one person who would not benefit from reading and applying the techniques explained in this book. Thank you Jason for reminding us what is important in our lives and helpful ways to uncover our unique gifts. This is certainly a must read for anyone searching for the answer to a more fulfilling life.
Great job!

2.0 out of 5 stars It's OK. November 12, 2012
By NathanB
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this book out of curiosity. I was pleased to read of the author's Christianity. While there were some great points to consider I found it to be a bit cluttered with cliches of church culture. I found myself rolling my eyes in certain places and saying to myself, "Yeah yeah. Blah blah blah," a few times. I didn't find anything particularly original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Read October 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In this book the author teaches us how to apply the 10-10-80 principle in all the aspects of our lives. The author mainly focuses on how to apply this principle on how we use our money, time, talents and treasure. The 10-10-80 principle enables one to divide their time, money, talents and treasures in such a way that one gives 10% to God, 10% to themselves and the 80% is left out so that you choose how you want to use it. Once you have grasped this principle you will begin to live a more fulfilled life. If you interested in learning how to manage all the aspects of your life: this is a book you might want to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired October 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great read! 101080 is more than a sound principle and good information, it is a relatable, insightful look at how amazingly we've all been created and what we all are destined for. The principle wants to happen naturally. We simply position ourselves to allow this God-given truth to flow.
