Maxwell has written more than 30 books and has had a long career in public speaking, first as a pastor and then as a conference and seminar leader, helping people maximize their potential. He says that most of us spend far too much time exaggerating our past successes and failures and overestimating tomorrow, assuming things will get better without creating a strategy for making it better. That's why he says that today is the only day that really matters, for today determines the successes of tomorrow. It all boils down to making good decisions, but determining what decisions to make is not always easy, so Maxwell has narrowed down the critical areas of success to 12 of what he calls the "Daily Dozen." They include such things as maintaining a positive attitude, sticking to priorities, following healthy guidelines, investing in good relationships, and managing finances. He has a chapter devoted to each discipline, with a short worksheet at the end to encourage you and assist you in your personal daily growth. David Siegfried

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!
I would suggest this book to anyone who is looking for a self help book that has actionable steps at the end of each chapter.
John C. Maxwell is a great writer and knows how to speak to his audience well, at no point did I get the feeling of condescendence or the feeling that I was being talked over like some authors of the same genera tend to do.
You definitely have to come into reading this book with the motivation to change an aspect of your life that the author states are covered within the book or it will be a waste of your valuable time.
Mr. Maxwell does repeat subject matter in his various books, rewriting on the same things. For instance he has books that are just about attitude or thinking and many more. I suppose they would be great if you wanted to read more on one area/subject. This book is a good overview of many of lifes best practices. His book on THE 21 IRREFUTABLE LAWS OF LEADERSHIP: FOLLOW THEM AND PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW YOU (ANNIVERSARY) BY MAXWELL, JOHN C.(AUTHOR )HARDCOVER ON 18-SEP-2007 is great also.
