There are 86400 seconds in every day. That means every day is rich with 86400 opportunities to fulfill your God-given purpose.
86400 is the instigator that will inspire you to live a renewed life of intention, ultimately managing your unique purpose to make a difference for others as well as for yourself.Starting with personal accounts of her own challenges with time management and her search to find meaning amidst her success and achievements, Lavaille Lavette provides ten characteristics she has discovered to help discern the value of each moment of the day and fill it with unique purpose. Each characteristic is exemplified by a noteworthy person who has earned accolades in his or her field of endeavor. Interviews with these and other remarkable individuals provide practical advice and demonstrate how purpose management empowers you to master your time and your reason for being.While managing your time will help you become more efficient at what you are already doing, this breakthrough approach shows you how to weave together a life that overflows with intention and relevance, that feels natural and sustainable. It challenges you to use those precious 86400 seconds of every day to live your passion, achieve your goals, and become all that the Creator ordained you to be. Lavaille calls this process “purpose management.” 86400 is where time management meets purpose, empowering you every moment of every day.
Somehow, in the preamble to this book, I missed that the word "God" was a euphemism for the fundamentalist, born-again Christian God, and not the generic God that many books use to cover any one of a zillion belief systems for which wisdom can be found and applied. Within the first few minutes, the Christ-centred living tenet came up, and I knew this was a fundo manifesto. I turned it off. Somehow, I missed that this audio book has the born-again Christian agenda, and whilst this might appeal to some and be exactly what they are looking for, it's not for me, and if this type of Christian-centric content is not what you are after either, then avoid this book. It's just a pity that the introductory editorial blurb does not make it clear enough that this book is about being a good follower of Jesus and living your purpose for Jesus. Had I known this, I would not have purchased it.

The author and those she interviewed provide the inspiration you need to find meaning and purpose in your life and make every moment count. Lavette's "purpose management" process will help you make the most of your life and make a difference for yourself and others.

Incoherent fundamentalist blather couched in the quasi-respectable disguise of the motivational and/or organizational genres. Heavily peppered with Bible verses we've all heard at least 1,354,850 times, this book is the original Bridge to Nowhere, with some very special self-congratulatory back-slapping generously administered by the author, who is about as inspiring as a quiescently frozen mud puddle on a city street in early February. I can't even finish it, it's so dull and pointless.
