As an entrepreneur, I know that habits are a great tool to succeed, most of us think of habits as physical rituals like checking our bank account or doing daily exercise. But I was always feeling there was more.
That's why I started reading Dr Maxwell books Today matters. The book talks about practices you can start implementing on a daily base and I do most of them and since I started implementing them, I do/feel more successful, I concentrate better and I have much less stress.
Many other books write about high-performance habits, this book explains about why thinking and family and generosity is important.
You would think these are strange subjects for an entrepreneur trying to make his business grow it isn't. What was very pleasant to read is Dr Maxwell comes up with many entrepreneurial examples. This made me give the book 5 stars. It is a book 100% dedicated to entrepreneurs and how to succeed.
Chapter 8 is about commitment as Dr Maxwell writes about a moment in his life he had to choose between keeping a commitment to his long-term client or accepting a meeting with the president of USA.
Finally, he committed to his client. I was in the same position several years ago. I gave my word to run and organise a local network event and I got a phone call from, in that time the Prince of Belgium, to promote an economic mission which I participated. Having a press conference with the Prince was a huge opportunity for my (small) company. In the end, I choose the stay with my commitment and run the network event. The good news is I had several meetings with the Prince during the mission and I had great contacts during the event.
When you practice this book, you bring your daily habits into a higher level, which will bring us on the road to more success
A great book and must read!
There are only a handful of important decisions that people need to make in their entire lifetimes.
You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.
You can pay now and play later, or you can play now and pay later, but either way you were going to pay.
The secret of your success is determined by your daily agenda.
If you make a few key decisions and then manage them well in your daily agenda, you will succeed.
It all comes down to what you do today.
Make a decision once.... then manage it daily.
Today is the only time we have within our grasp, yet many people let it slip through their fingers. They recognize neither today's value nor its potential.

It's an old book but the values are still valid, these will (should) never change throughout the years. Great inspirational book for J.C. Maxwell, he is an author you should read more of most definitely.
A simple, easy to read practical book, I would highly recommend.
