Have you ever gotten to the point in your life where one day is like all the rest? Where the individuality, excitement and purpose of every moment is drained of its promising complexion? Through work, school, family and routine, people strive more and more to “get by” rather than “get going.” But God didn’t intend for it to be like this. Every precious second in a day, all 86,400 of them, is a gift from Him to us. Our lives, that we whittle away with routine and complacency, are meant for so much more.

86,400 is the instigator for a renewed life of intention and relevance-ultimately making the most out of every single day. By showcasing how she and Christians who carry either celebrity or inspirational significance manage their daily gift, Lavaille effectively teaches readers how they can fulfill God’s intended purpose.

 This book is helping me alter my thought processes from time management to purpose management.  I’m not always very good with time management.  I get sidetracked very easily.

One of the things Ms Lavette said really got my attention.  “Wisdom is knowing what to do, why you should do it, and, finally, getting busy doing the darn thing.”

I’m not yet finished with this book, but I can see how much it is helping me get control of my minutes as I work towards my purpose management.  I think you will find that it will do the same for you.
