Subtitled The Crash Course For Mastering Your Life Right Now, this book is a quick read that will cause you to think. In fact, since the book is about making the best use of your time, the writer, Robert D. Smith, wanted the book to be quite brief. The volume can be read quite thoughtfully in less than two hours.
Coming to the realization that he had lived nearly 20,000 days, Smith went on a retreat by himself and tried to think about, if he had 20,000 days left, what would he most like to accomplish? In reality, answering that question did not take long, because he knew what his most valued things in life were. The trick, of course, was just to do those things!
This book asks many challenging questions, but the overall thrust of this volume is very simple. It is to live to your priorities each day. Each chapter addresses that singular theme from a different angle. You may think, then, that this is a boring or very repetitive book, but that is not true. Due not only to its brevity, but also to the different angles of each chapter, you will find yourself enriched and challenged.
Of course, by making us think of days instead of years, this book really gives a strong challenge, but it is a Biblical challenge (cf. Psalm 90:12). I highly recommend this book.
