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.)

Smith is CEO of Franklin Quest, a company that conducts time-management seminars for corporations, organizations, and government agencies, reaching as many as 20,000 persons per month. It also sells day-planner scheduling books as an integral part of the time-management system it touts. This highly successful company was founded by Smith a little more than 10 years ago and was modeled on the self-improvement system outlined in Benjamin Franklin's autobiography. Smith argues that there is much more to managing time than getting things done. He preaches that only by understanding one's own value system can one decide what matters most, set priorities, and accomplish one's goals. The result is not only a better-organized life but a more fulfilling one. By focusing on time, Smith has provided a self-improvement book that almost everyone can use--and benefit from.

Smith summarizes what made the Franklin planner work. It was more than the formatted pages aseven-ring binders. It was focusing on what you want to become, putting a plan into action and sticking with the plan.

We've been told over and over that we have to set priorities for ourselves or we'll never get the things done that matter the most. The problem is that few people know what their true priorities are. Smith clearly describes the process by which we may determine what our 'core values' actually are, and then helps the reader understand how to use them for setting ones priorities. Smith offers fantastic and insightful information on managing your life by managing your time.....in a manner which actually supports your personal and professional goals. In this manner the reader learns how to gain control, not only over their time, but over their lives. This book truly offers the key to achieving success, happiness and peace of mind.
