LEAD STORY II
The Quest for Inner Peace
Co-creator of the legendary Franklin planner, Hyrum Smith published a book in 2000 titled What Matters Most. A year later the book’s relevance became suddenly more vivid, when the events of 9/11 thrust people into a time of vastly greater self-reflection. Hyrum discusses the results of an extensive survey they’ve recently conducted, which shows that regardless of the social context, the things both Smith and Covey speak about are always relevant, because they are truly timeless.
