Winston Churchill was one of the most extraordinary leaders of the twentieth century. What enabled him to stand so steadfastly when all those around him seemed to turn back in fear? What enabled him to inspire whole nations to endure the unendurable and to achieve the unachievable when all those around him had already surrendered all hope? The Character and Greatness of Winston Churchill is a remarkable study of Churchill’s leadership skill and answers these questions and more. The result is an account that is no less inspiring today than it was three-quarters of a century ago when the great man’s shadow fell large across the world stage. According to Henry Kissinger, “Our age finds it difficult to come to grips with Churchill. The political leaders with whom we are familiar generally aspire to be superstars rather than heroes. The distinction is crucial. Superstars strive for approbation; heroes walk alone. Superstars crave consensus; heroes define themselves by the … future they see it as their task to bring about. Superstars seek success as a technique for eliciting support; heroes pursue success as the outgrowth of their inner values.” Winston Churchill was a hero.
The Full Focus Planner has been a game-changer for me. In the past, I’ve tried to be more productive by trying the latest apps or reading more books about the subject. While some have helped, I found it was a fancy way for me to procrastinate.
The Focus Planner helps me in a lot of ways. Here are a few:
- The Daily Pages help me identify the most important tasks for me to complete each day.
- The Weekly Preview helps me connect my weekly actions to my quarterly and annual goals.
- The Quarterly Preview helps me re-evaluate my progress and move forward in a purposeful way.
If you’re looking for a planner that will help you accomplish big things while feeling less overwhelmed, I’d encourage you to give this planner a try!

A Quote I’m Thinking About
If the day [Jesus] died was, in time, called ‘Good’, then maybe one day, our hardest days can be called ‘good’ too.”
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
– Romans 8:28 (NASB)
