Most business or self-development books try to get their ideas into you. What Matters Most by Hyrum Smith is a book about the real you getting out.
It's a fabulos collection of thought provoking stories and questions to release not only your dreams but who you were created to be. The last third of the tapes takes you through Hyrum's (The creator of the Franklin Planning System) proven method for accomplishing your goals in life.
You can get most of the book's content by listening to the tapes. Just remember that it is designed to be a workbook about you. To get the most out of the journey, you will have to stop the tape and do the exercises (Ex: Write down your values).
You should also note that to really get the life change out of it, you will need to take you some time to reflect on the results of the self-discovery questions. I spent days working through the results to my questions. However, even if you just listen to the tapes, you will enjoy the speaker and find them applicable to daily life.
Easily one of the best experiences, never mind books that I have ever embraced. Highly Recomended.

In TEN NATURAL LAWS, Hyrum Smith educates us on two key concepts for time and life management: The Productivity Pyramid and The Reality Model. These models rely, respectively, on two supporting concepts of human cognition: Governing Values and Beliefs. In WHAT MATTERS MOST, Smith enhances our understanding of these concepts with a simplified and more thoroughly integrated Productivity Pyramid that ties Smith's Governing Values concept with Stephen Covey's concepts of Mission Statement and Roles. As usual, Smith illustrates his points with tales from notables like Winston Churchill as well as his own personal anecdotes. As a practitioner of Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism, I gained great value from both of Smith's books. I recommend reading TEN NATURAL LAWS first because I found the diagrams helpful. The reader can then augment his understanding of the FranklinCovey methods with WHAT MATTERS MOST.
