T.D. Jakes does a great job in helping readers to reflect on why maximizing the moment is so important. One example he uses in the book is the death of his mother. He clearly helps his readers move out of the past and into the now. It is a 200 page book that I read in a day. I purchased it on a Friday in Jamaica and finished that Saturday night on the flight home.
Not what I expected but even better! I thought it would be a time management book but so far it has been about relationships - those that enable us to be our best and those that tend to drag us down and delay our progress. Some might think this would be easy to see but often it is the subtle things that do the most damage because we don't notice the impact they are having. Every page gave me something to reflect upon.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It was both informative and motivational. I would highly recommend it to anyone needing encouragement, advice, or just a little perspective on how to best use the time you have. It was a great book and one I would definitely read again!
