A nationally renowned motivational speaker, management consultant to top companies, and creator of The Franklin System introduces a simple, effective, and proven system to organize your time and your life. 2 cassettes.
But there is something even greater to this book than just prioritizing goals and time managment, and that is happiness. This book offers tools and ultimately a way of thinking that ensures an individuals happiness. Hyrum Smith gives us the formula, and we just pop our own individual life charactersistics and goals into the equation.
The best self-help book out there!!!!!
This is the best self change book ever! I have read virtually everything you can imagine (& I even used the Waitely & Robbins tapes too), from Covey to Robbins, from Carnegie, Clement Stone,Swartz, You name it I have tried it.
Ok what makes this so good?
In one book of 217 pages you will by the time you finish:
Understand that you cannot control time but can control events (This is very powerful)
You need to understand what your values are to lay the faoundation for personal fulfilment, two powerful illustrations are given
Understanding that you get peace when what you do daily links with your values (This was an eye opener the 1st day I implemented it)
The need to get out of the comfort zone to reach any significant goal. (Yes its hard but the story of the labourer turned Dentist is amazing)
Daily planning leads to results from focused efforts
Each one of the chapters I read was the equal of the best books by other authors. This book really gets you going and implementing.
This guru developed the Franklin Planner that is still used 2 years later by 90% of the people who buy the planner. If you love Covey but find it difficult to implement I believe this book (By his business partner) is for you. I intend to do a further write up as I use what I have learnt.
I believe that this gives you the tools that you can embellish later. The main advantage here is that you will apply what you have learnt. I recommend it highly.
I was so wrong. Read more
