Most of us look at our days in the wrong way. We overexaggerate yesterday. We overestimate tomorrow. We underestimate today. The truth is that the most important day will experience is today. Making today your masterpiece is the key to success. Maxwell offers twelve decisions and disciplines - he calls it his daily dozen - that can be learned and mastered by any person to achieve success. He teaches how to possess possibilities, remain focused, enjoy good health, exhibit stability, hold an advantage, be tenacious, experience fulfilment, exercise options, sense inner peace, feel significant, receive direction, and learn to grow. These lessons are simple, but the gap between knowing and doing is greater than the gap between ignorance and knowledge. In Today Matters, Maxwell teaches how to close that problematic gap.

Publishers Weekly, 2004-04-12 Maxwell (The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership) serves up his usual dose of uplifting advice. This book's message is broader than some of his earlier business tomes, in that he uses his marriage, work experience and anecdotes from people such as basketball coach John Wooden, businessman Armand Hammer and actor Christopher Reeve to explore his theme of the importance of making sound decisions on a daily basis. Too many people dwell on what happened yesterday, according to Maxwell, who believes that, instead, people can maximize what they accomplish every day by focusing on a dozen key areas including family, finances, faith, values and growth. By having clear priorities in each of these areas, Maxwell says that people will actually have fewer decisions to make because their vision will be so clear. Maxwell's tone is straightforward and his advice is sound, if obvious. For example, he offers a list of negative phrases ("Maybe, I'm afraid, I don't believe ) that he thinks should be eliminated from one's vocabulary. As expected from this pastor, he also stresses religious faith and the importance of families. Readers hoping for creative and original advice in solving their problems are likely to be disappointed, but others may still find the book's message uplifting, especially amid today's corporate scandal and concern with declining ethical values.
