"I seem to have misplaced my time, can you help me find it?" is a phrase in this book that really got my attention. Written from a Christian perspective, this book is sprinkled with stories of success and failure in the arena of time management. The author is very candid as he shares a sad story of a mid-life crisis and breakdown in his own life. No one wants to wake up and realize that years of their life has been squandered. Quotes from some famous and not so famous people are interspersed throughout to give inspiration. Some are from holy figures such as saints and some are from ordinary people. The discipline of prayer is discussed heavily as the author notes how few people stop to think about the quality of their spirituality. This ties into what the book describes as the inner world versus the outer world. The outer world is clear for the public to see--clothing, accolades, relationships, etc. However, the inner world is obscured from the public view--depression, emotions, prayer, spirituality, etc. The cry of this book is to slow down and manage one's time properly. Every moment spent is a moment lost. There are incredible feats that people can achieve if they stop and think about what they want. It is very difficult to write a review for this book since it is not exactly linear. The chapters are unique but follow the same common theme. I encourage readers to discover for themselves what they enjoy about ordering their own private world. Due to disjointed nature of this book, it is very easy to pick up after days of neglect. I went on vacation and picked up right where I left off without missing a beat! Also, there is an insightful readers guide in the back of the book that will help facilitate personal growth or book club discussion.
