A few quotes from the book will highlight the impact of this speech.
"Most people overestimate what they
can do in a day, and underestimate
what they can do in a month.

There is a great deal of wisdom in this little volume. If you will read it, take it in and apply it not only will your life be changed but you will have a huge impact on other people's lives.

This is another excellent book from The Dynamic Catholic Institute and by Matthew Kelly I strongly encourage you got give it a read.
