Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Strongly influenced by Benjamin Franklin, Smith, CEO of a Utah consulting company, offers insightful pronouncements on America's time fragmentation. ``Life is getting more and more hectic. The daily treadmill is accelerating, and we have to run faster and faster just to stay in one place.'' His recommendations for regaining control of time, events and hence life are intriguing, as are his suggestions on goal setting, planning and negative behavior traits. Yet Smith's sharply focused managerial constructs become muddled with material on ``life management,'' aimed at achieving ``inner peace--the transcendant feeling of fulfillment and well-being.'' And his commercial endorsements of his company's seminars and products are irksome . Author tour. (Jan.)

If you use a Franklin Planner (currently known as Franklin Covey), there was a time that this may have been your bible. Hyrum Smith does a good job with laws 1-5, which were very useful in their time. In today's world, they have become a little out of date in the technological age. Laws 6-10 start to sound a little like Stephen Covey: long-winded and somewhat limited in their usefulness, at least to me. This book is worth a quick read if you're trying to get back on track regarding time and life management. Beyond that, it is a somewhat limited resource.

The key word in the title of this book is "Successful." I was profoundly surprised and affected by this book. We are all victims of the bombardment of tasks coming from all directions - what I like to call "noise". And while helping others is important (even mandatory, with respect to our employee obligations) we risk our own lives being drowned out by all the "noise." Hyrum Smith offers a simple yet provocative system to ensure that we remain focused on what's important - a system that helps us to connect our dreams to our daily activities, despite all the ambient "noise." I now find myself going through the steps of this system to gain that benefit.

This is still my most used reference material for time management. I've used this book at various stages in my professional and personal life to get things back into perspective. As a marketing consultant, Time Management & Marketing Performance are inseparable twins.

Great book to organize your thoughts and actions around what is most important in life to you. There should be a required class in school that uses this book as a text.
