“What can you and I do right now in order to make the most out of the years in front of us? What can we do to accomplish more, to celebrate more, to touch more lives in our remaining years than we have to this point? How can we live our next days to the fullest?”
That is what Robert D. Smith is going after in this book and he is very intentional with his thoughts and actions.
Want to maximize every single day? Here are a three practical steps Smith suggests:
1 – Discover your purpose in life in twenty minutes!
Step 1. Get a blank sheet of paper. Title it, “My Purpose in Life.”
Step 2. Start writing. Right now. Write. Write all you can. Words, phrases, complete sentences. Just write. Don’t stop. Write some more.
Step 3. Repeat step two until you get the answer that makes you either cry or jump up and down with excitement. Condense it into one sentence. This is your purpose.
2 – Give the first hour of your day to the TOP thing you want to accomplish.
Prioritize your daily list of things to do by what’s most important and rewarding, well before you start.
3 – Become a planner. How do you do this?
Become a process fanatic. Love the activity. List what you have thought about and what you are to become. Your life will take place whether you have a plan or not, so have a plan. Choose one.
To become a master of time, you must master your mind and have a strategy. This book is a tremendous jump start to living each day with huge purpose. I will certainly come back to this book as reference and inspiration.
