Great Books: Today Matters – 12 Daily Practices to Guarantee Tomorrows Success
This has been one of my favourite books for years. I copied out one of the first few pages of the book. Basically the premise of the book is each day you get up you look at all of these areas of your life. Make daily decisions to live these areas to the best of your abilities. When you go to bed you see how you did. Each chapter of the book is on the different areas of your life mentioned below (attitude, priorities etc). This is a very practical book for people who come from a faith background or not.
Today’s Attitude gives me Possibilities
Today’s Priorities give me focus
Today’s Health gives me strength
Today’s Family gives me stability
Today’s Thinking gives me an advantage
Today’s Commitment gives me tenacity
Today’s Finances gives me options
Today’s Faith gives me peace
Today’s Relationships give me fulfillment
Today’s Generosity gives me significance
Today’s Values give me direction
Today’s Growth gives me potential
So Just For Today …
I will choose and display the right attitudes
I will determine and act on important priorities
I will know and follow healthy guidelines
I will communicate with and care for my family
I will practice and develop good thinking
I will make and properly manage finances
I will deepen and live out my faith
I will initiate and invest in solid relationships
I will plan for and model generosity
I will embrace and practice good values
I will seek and experience improvements
I will act on these decisions and practice these disciplines.
Then one day I will see the compounding results of a day lived well.
